NaNo, Day 16

Whoo hoo!


26730 / 50000 words. 53% done!

All caught up! And it's still early enough that I could either work on my 12days_of_clois assignment or watch Dexter. Which d'ya think I should choose? Actually, fyredancer and I have another short word war planned first, so hmm. Maybe I'll do Clois during that war. :D

Anyway, I hit one of the pivotal scenes in the novel, and it took the whole 3000 words of catch up to finish it. I think it might be the best writing of the novel so far. I was "in the zone", which hasn't happened much with this thing. :D Of course, now I have to slow the pacing and start revving up for the next pivotal scene...

Yay! Go you!

I wasn't sure I could do NaNo, either. And I guess it's not over yet!

CLOIS WORD WAR, FTW! \o/

And way to go, you, for catching up on your NaNo word count! :D *offers you a cookie*

Yum yummy! *gobbles up cookie*

I did get another 500 words done on the Clois story, yay! Hopefully if I do a couple more 500 word days on the story it will get done. :)

Clois word wars sound like fun. I'm about halfway through my 12days_of_clois story and really want to get it done ASAP!

*tabs over to word processor*

They are fun! Even though I rarely win, since I'm a pretty slow typist. :D

Did you get more done on yours last night?

Just another three hundred and some-odd words. But I'm skating along on exactly where this will go next: I have this horrible feeling that the next episode of Smallville is going to Joss me!

You could always read my chapter 4 for your break. ^_~


Good to see that you're half done.

Yay! I'm so glad you met that goal. :D

Wow, that sounds great! You're on a roll!

I have my 12days_of_clois fic finally all planned out so I am hoping to get about half way through today and the rest done tomorrow. :D

Thanks! I'm really happy that I've been able to keep my wordcount up. :D

Awesome!!! :D

I'm currently at 22,222 words (*giggles madly*) and I've got a few hours yet before I really need to go to bed, but I'm not writing anywhere near as fast as I should be. Still, considering how far behind I was on Friday night, I think I'm doing pretty good. :D

Wow! I can't believe how well you're doing at the catch-up! GO GO GO!

Some of us had no doubts you'd get caught up there with time to spare. Well done you! :)

That's wonderful! I'm looking forward to reading it.

Which one? ;)

But thank you! I think it's going pretty well, though it definitely will need tons of edits once it's done.

Both of course!
