That's right! I am at 45,260. HAHAHAHAHA
I typed up 4,828 words TODAY. That's a lot for me.
I've been pretty careful in keeping track of my word count. What I have, what the official word count is, what I would like to have, and how many words I need to add to make up the difference.

This method had worked out pretty well for me.
As long as I had a number to shoot for, I was able to aim at it and got it.

So the official word count for 22nd day is 36,674.
for day 23: 38,341.
Blew By You!
For my own "desired word count" Day 22: 42,670 and Day 23: 44,670.
I haven't quite caught up to day 24 which is 46,670.

I am going to TRY and hit another marathon day, do a lot of word sprints and get the 4,740 words I need to WIN 2009 NaNoWriMo!

I may win and get the 50,000 words, but my "book" isn't finished.
I am depressed. *sighs
I swear I am manic depressive.
I don't know how many more words I need to finish this story. Another...? 40k? 50k?! God I hope not.
So I will be participating in NaNoFinMo this year and trying to wrap it up.
Then I shall save my work in 3 different places and toss it into a drawer and not look at it again for a few weeks.

I am so looking forward to not having to sit here and type.
At least I beat John Green :P

Nerdfighters are made of awesome...but some have chewy centers!

Okay I am off to bed, because I didn't get a full night's sleep last night.
And then tomorrow...Tomorrow we CLAIM VICTORY!!!!!

And then I have to wait for the 25th for the word count validator to go officially online >.<
Might even go to the write-in...maybe not. I dunno.

Yay! I won! I won! I Won National Novel Writing Month! (pending)
Go ME!!!

Hello there! Hello there!

I am the proud author of 4,000 + words! yay!
I am rather puffed up proud of myself. I didn't write a single sentence (complete at least) on Sunday. I got back from the World Fantasy con feeling like I had caught a cold or something. My sinuses hurt and my throat was scratchy.
I've been downing Vitamin C like it's going out of style.
The good news is that my sniffles are being held at bay. and the Better News is that I made up the 1,669 word count and caught up to and surpassed the 3,334 day two word count!

SO, tomorrow the goal is to hit 6000 words and be ahead of the 5,001 word count.
I think I can do it.

Wednesday is a write-in in Monterey. I've been meaning to go but like I said, I am a germ carrier right now, and I thought I would be nice and not expose my fellow nano'ers to my icky bugs.

The World Fantasy con was...interesting.
It was an "Adult" con. The Thrum was very much different than Fanime. I like the fanime exuberance better. I love books, and really enjoyed the panels.
It was nice to see Naamen and meet so many new ppl.
I may try to go to another one sometime. We'll see.

Okay I am done I think, I am going to poke at my story for a bit. Truth be told I think it's crap but as long as I produce I guess I should be happy. It will all work itself out I am sure as we go a long.
I do sort of feel that I've lost my plot. I know it's there's just getting buried under all the: And then Grace did this. And then Patty did that.
I guess...I am just "building" right now.
I was hoping to get all of this "set up" Stuff in chapter one but I might have to break it up into two chapters and introduce Stoney in Chapter Three...*meh!
Oh well he may make more of an impact with a delayed entrance.

Okay off to bed.
