11/30/11: I did it! As I did last year, I completed the NaNoWriMo challenge a day early, but I was so tired last night that I didn't do the verification until today. But regardless if it was 29 or 30 days, 50,054 words (which is what it turned out to be) in one month is quite the accomplishment, if I do say so myself. And Stephie says she really liked reading it. Twice she said that I surprised her, which I think is high praise indeed. So now I think I'm done with writing for a little while.

At least until the rewriting begins!

11/24/11: Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. We had a terrific one, with everyone coming over to enjoy the fabulous dinner Stephie slaved over, this after watching the Packers handily beat the Lions. The only problem was that I didn't have much time for writing. Fortunately I was still ahead from last week, so now I'm just about on track, with a three-day weekend ahead. The end is in sight!

11/22/11: I'm just about three-quarters of the way to my goal with 8 days to go, and I think I may just make it. I was a little worried I'd run out of story before then, but now I think I have enough story left without doing too much padding. Keep your fingers crossed!

11/19/11: Almost two-thirds of the way to my goal, and I'm still ahead of schedule, but I'm hitting a few rough patches. I find myself curiously less motivated than I was a week ago. I think I'm a little worried that my story will end before it hits 50,000 words, but I've just introduced another main character, and that plot tangent may be what I need to get to the finish line. I seem to be more into it than I was last year, possibly because I know I have it in me to finish. After all, I have Casco Cove to prove it.

11/15/11: Halfway through the month, and I'm more than halfway to my goal of 50,000 words. Woo-hoo! This is the first time since November 1 that I'm actually ahead of my cumulative target. The bad thing is I have to go back to work tomorrow, so I'm back to writing late in the evenings. But it's flowing pretty well, and the story is picking up speed!

11/08/11: I'm still about a day and a half behind, but I blame that on this cold I'm fighting. I've got a six day 'staycation' coming up, so by this time next week, I should be sitting pretty, well ahead of plan. At least I hope so.

11/02/11: It's November, and that means it's National Novel Writing Month. Here's my latest stats from the NaNoWriMo web site. I'll try to update this daily, so you can check back to watch my progress.
