Stolen from supercsi4.




6522 / 50000 words. 13% done!

I still have about 350 words to go on the daily wordcount. But I'm confident I can do it! My promise to myself is to write 500 words, then check election results and LJ. ETA: I stopped with 150 to go. End of chapter, makes sense to me!

I tried to vote at 6:30am, but the line was huge! I went back at 3pm, deciding to write as much of my wordcount as possible in line... but there was no line then, lol. I'm so proud of all my American friends for being so proactive and voting today!

So from this little voter in a big battleground state... Go America! :)

I'd been looking for a widget! Thanks for posting it. :)

Good luck finishing up your NaNo count for today!

Thanks! I think I might actually stop now -- I got to the end of a chapter. :)

Yay for voting. :D
This is my first presidential election that I have voted in so I am excited.

This election has been the most exciting I've ever been part of -- it was a great time to begin! :)

Way to go! On voting and on your word count. :D

I'm working on mine... slowly getting closer to my target, but I'm completely unmotivated today. :(

Thanks! I am finding it easier each day to meet my goal. I hope the momentum continues!

I'm glad you're finding it easier to do! :) I'm real happy to see you doing this, too. :)

I'm... lost, I think. I don't know where this is going all that much. *sigh* But, then again, I think I go through this every year. Worst thing is, this year, I have an outline for the story - I didn't have any the last two, I just sort of added plot and things as I went. *lol* Maybe I do better with chaos. LOL!

Well, the founder suggests that less planning is more with this project... maybe that's what you should do? Let the outline go a bit?

I've actually made two major drifts from my written outline, just in 4 days!

hehehe - yeah, "No plot, no problem!" ;) That's actually what I did the first time around, I had absolutely no idea where I was going, I was making it up as I went along. And then I found that I had written myself into a corner, so I went back and added a whole entire plot into the story. ;)

I think my biggest problem might be that I'm writing a sequel to something, instead of something completely new... Or that I'm trying to get this thing to make sense instead of just writing to add words and telling myself I'll just delete the useless ones when I edit this thing later.

Mind you, I think I'm just depressed right now... I should probably have brought some B12 vitamins along with me - these seemed to help my mood recently. Or, I dunno, I guess I just want to stay here and not go back home again and I can't. Bleh. Sorry to rant...

Go America, indeed!

My county had 47.5% of its voters do early/absentee voting. That's AMAZING. That's, like, our usual total turnout.

And go you, NaNo person! :D

That's really amazing! But I suppose in Florida, people are trying really hard to make sure their votes actually count!! :D

And thanks. :)

Please, let us not go there - to the debacles of elections past. LOL

I snorted my drink up my nose. Thanks so much. :D

Ohio rocks!

YAY OHIO!

Booooooo West Virginia. :(

Totally. But hey, 5 electoral votes vs. 20!
professorjulia

It was a lose-lose for WV. Do they go for the *shudder* Republican, or for the *shudder* "person of color"?

And I say that with much love for my WV peeps. :D

I tried my best to turn my stupid state blue. Pfft. (ETA: *headdesk* Even my stupid county is red! UGH.)

Ah, well. We're only worth eight electoral votes anyways.

But, hooray for Ohio! \o/

*SIGH*

True, true.

At least my home state came through. ;) As if I thought it wouldn't! *grins*

Home state? (something new to learn about Bisty?)

I'm originally from IL. You didn't know this?? It's no secret! I was born north of Chicago!

:D

I must have forgotten all about it! Was there any doubt IL would go to Obama? :D

No doubt at all! \o/

I do love my little blue state! Ten points for us.
htbthomas
Nov. 5th, 2008 10:40 am (UTC)
YAY! I'm just so happy that my state actually went the same way I did! This is the first time ever (out of 6 elections). My candidate has won twice, but I lived in a red state both of those times, so my vote never swayed them. ;)

hehehhe, but then again, my state usually votes blue. ^_~

Honestly, that's a HUGE reason I voted for him! We need to be relevant and work together with the world. Isolationism is the opposite of what should be happening in the 21st century.
