Finished Day 6 on 5

Yes I did! 10,019 words completed, 39,981 and 25 days to go. Macon, my main charater ended up staying at the hospital. Then he was treated so poorly when he return to the jail, with 16 stitches in his head, but hey he has to have trying times right? He’s OK for now so I’ll move on.

I feel so productive right now. It’s my day off work so I slept late, waking up at 6, uh, 5, time changed last night and so it will be dark by 6PM now. Not my favorite time of the year just because it gets dark so early. Oh well, more writing time.

But I’m up before every one else, so there are no distractions. If I reach my word count to meet tomorrows word count goal I will be at 11,669 this morning. Debating on whether to reach Tuesday’s as well. This coming Friday is looking good for time grabbing too. It’s a holiday and so I’ll have more time to write.

Note: Must remember to pay tribute to the Veterans and to my ancestors who fought and/or were drafted and injured and/or died in the Revolutionary, Civil, WWI, and WWII wars on my Ancestry blog. Whatever their roles were they deserve a big HOORAY!

Sometimes things just work out. take for instance, NaNoWriMo’s website has a nifty little word count tracker that gives instant stats once users type in their daily word count. It shows the total of words written, words remaining, current day count, days remaining, and a nice “At this rate you will be finished on…. ” Nice right.

One other stat it offers is how many words on average you’ve written each day. Everyone knows you’ll need 1667 words a day to complete the 50,000. Maybe it’s a mind trick, or coincidence, or just me reaching, but my stats say I have written 1667 words on a daily average. I should go play the lottery. There’s just know way I could have mastered that one.

I’m rambling here, I know, really just wanted to say Good Morning to all, and share a little glory, strangeness, and my quirkiness, bright and early. Too I needed to get away from Macon. He ‘s gonna have to stop whinning so much, he did the crime, so he has to do the time, right.

A thought just crossed my mind the text above just used up nearly four hundred words, 400! Could have spent that on my novel, but I’d have lost my productivity I think.

My dream is to become a professional bullshit artist. Or, as others prefer to call them, a novelist. I know, a highly unoriginal and unattainable goal. What's my back-up plan? Ninja fairy. Here's to being disgustingly unoriginal!
