I haven't been officially doing NaNoWriMo -- I was already 49,200 words into a projected-100,000 word novel as of October 31st -- but I've been using NaNo as a pace car.

And this evening I slid past 101,000 words (with 5-10,000 words still to go to finish the first draft). So I guess I passed the 50,000 word mark in November without noticing :wink:

Finishing a work in progress during NaNo just makes you a "rebel." There's even a forum for your kind, and you still have time to set up and paste in the words you wrote during November for validation. Joins us! :)

I'm a day behind, but have the day off. I've written 300 words today... only 2700 to go so that I catch up. I think I'll go make some tea... take a nap... :P

I'm very out indeed. Got sidetracked, started writing something else, forgot all about NaNoWriMo, didn't write anything at all for two weeks on any project, had a rush of blood to the head and started a third writing project, spent ages fiddling around with timelines and subplot intersections rather than actually putting pixels to paper, remembered NaNoWriMo this weekend, thought "oh bother", couldn't remember what NaNoWriMo project was about, decided it probably wasn't worth picking it up again if I couldn't remember anything about it, and gave up. Not a stellar year! And definitely not a winner.

Well done to everyone else!

:shock: Oh! Dear me...Mistress Astrid...may the saints preserve us. A woeful example to set before the impressionable malcontents of Scrivener's crew. I fear the worst. :(

Yeah, I got sidetracked on the first week. But I got back in the habit of doing something creative every day, so it was a win. :)
