NaNoWriMo Update #3

Here is where we stand: I just broke the 24,ooo mark today. So that means, instead of averaging 1,667 words a day like I was supposed to, I've averaged 1,000 words a day. So that means I've got to do 26,000 more words in the next six days, or 4,334 words a day. So that means I've got a crazy-ass pile of work sitting in front of me, seemingly impossible, you'll say, considering my track record over the past three weeks.

I am not throwing in the towel. I'm still hammering away at that count, day after day. Thursday the 29th is the day of reckoning, a day off right near the end. It may prove to be one of the most miserable days of my life. Throwing down 1,ooo original words isn't that hard and really, that's all that I have to do.

Twenty-six times.

Twenty-six times in the next six days. Seems easy. Hasn't been so far. But how could I let all of you people down?
