Day three update.

Meant to post this last night, but decided I had been sitting at the computer long enough. I'm currently sitting at 10,337 words for my NaNoWriMo novel, which puts me at being more than 20% done. Holy crud. I look at the word count every once in a while when I am writing, mainly to see how far I have to go before I hit my daily goal, which is higher than the 1,667 that is required to get 50,000 words in 30 days.

My daily goal isn't higher because I want to write more than 50k (I do, but that's beside the point). It's higher because I know that there will be days where I just won't have time to get in more than 500 or 1000 words, and I want to have a buffer against such times.

Plus, it would be nice, when visiting the family for Turkey Day, to casually announce, "I've finished my novel."

Just cruising thru blogdom here and noticed you're involved in NaNoWriMo. So am I. I have 15,000+ so far. Good luck!
