Or 50,725 if you trust EditPad

I'm sure at least a third of those will be cut in editing, but for now my hands are tired and I don't want to look at it any more. XD

My program says 50,059
NaNo's site says 49,456

Writing more words, I am.

48,560 words down. :)

Alexis and Jordan drifted off but that's okay, Christian and Matt picked up the slack. I think I have another scene with the boys that might finish me off in terms of word count. The actual story needs heavy editing, but that's not surprising. NaNo is not for finishing a polished story, it's for getting a rough draft down.

Thanks to Lexie and Jordan I made it to 46055 tonight.

Paula had little to do with it, and Matt, Cory, and Christian even less, but they did their little parts and Christian and Matt may be taking over tomorrow if I get stuck again.

My hands are really sore today, but I still managed to get to 41,812 words.

I also started a dog sweater. It's for a small dog and I'm already a couple inches into it. I think the pattern dramatically overestimated the yardage required, but I won't know until I finish it. If I don't need the second skein they over estimated.

And sadly, I know at least half of this will be ripped out in editing.

40,098 words

Today's segment brought to you by Sam's creepy stalker of a neighbor. I need to think of a way to keep that poor woman from going home because that guy is seriously creeping me out.

I totally forgot to update yesterday. I had a nice car trip and lunch out and still managed to write some and get to 36,686 words.

Today I reached 38,391 words. I'm still two days ahead and I hope to get to 40k tomorrow.

Knitting catch up time. )

I think I am out of steam. I hope I think of something to write tomorrow.

33,581

Still two days ahead, no loss of buffer today either, but I really had hoped to be at 35k tonight. Oh well, if I do figure out what to write tomorrow I can try for 36k which will close enough to 36,667 that I might push for it if I have the time.

No matter what I do tomorrow though I must go out and take down the wind chimes outside my window. We have had snow and I've spotted ice forming on them this afternoon. That section where they hang is prone to becoming a very large icicle every winter so the chimes have to come in.

Meh

Sick today. Hands hurt. Wrote anyway.

1750 words, which is less than I have been but more than yesterday. My total is now 31,860 which is still two days ahead of schedule.

I'm still not feeling the love for this story, but I do like the characters at least. Except maybe Peyton, he's a prissy ass and doesn't get along with Vince.

Bah!

I totally did not feel like writing today. I didn't knit either. Frankly I don't know what I did today other than talk to Mom on the phone and that wasn't a very long call (for us).

Anyway, only made it to 30,110 which was just 1084 words for the day, not even the NaNo standard of 1667. I'm still two days ahead though, but only 3443 words in the buffer now rather than 4026.

But! At the end of the last scene I wrote I pulled the names of four new characters out of the air. Yes, this means I have nine named characters to chase around, though I don't expect these new four to be major players. For one thing, other than Director Elizabeth Riedel I have no clue what they do, other than be generic federal level law enforcement types. Basil Ericson will probably need a good manly nickname if anyone needs to call him anything other than Ericson. Peyton Nibbe has me pulling my hair already and I at least think I have an idea of what he does. I think he's going to be a problem when I get him and Vince in the same room, competing professionals I suspect.

The one that has me most interested though, is Logan McGregor. When I was trying to find her given name she told me she was named after her grandmother's family (Logan was Grandma's maiden name). It was a ploy to curry favor with the rich relative and it worked, for Logan. She gets an allowance from her Grandmother, and has a fat trust fund waiting for her to turn thirty.

Logan is actively chatty at me, which is a pleasant change from the other characters. Well other than Vince, Vince sort of had a meltdown on me and got me ahead of schedule with his internal freak out.
