NaNoWriMo 2009 Update

Haha, I said I wasn't going to write any posts during the month of November because of NaNoWriMo, but I've already added two more short blurbs to the collection of pre-written ones. Just wanted to give you a quick update on how I've been doing on the novel so far.
  1. Yesterday was the halfway mark, which means I should be at 25K words out of 50K but I'm not. ^_^;; Current count as of this morning: 20,150.
  2. Being a blog writer, I tend to summarize a lot so people won't lose interest. With NaNoWriMo, you have to have a completely different attitude of expand, expand, expand! And throw in a couple of random dream sequences if needed.
  3. All "winners" who complete at least 50K words by November 30th can have their novel printed as a paperback for free by the awesome sponsor CreateSpace. Sweetness!
P.S. In case you want to keep track of how I'm doing, here's my handy-dandy word count widget that updates in real time. Wish me luck!
