41,700 words and five days left. 8,300 words to complete this first draft and have at least 50,000 words at the finish. I don’t know if my main character, Macon is going to make it. I don’t know if I’m going to survive it either.

It feels like I’ve lived in this fiction world too long, like I’m not going to come back from that other world, my imagination. And I love it! Though my head hurts a bit.

Regardless, I’ve managed to get through some tough times so far and Macon’s going to have to be a man about it. Well, I’ll give him some credit. He did just beat the crap out of one of his enemies. After he gets out of medical he may even do some more damage.

Who knows what will happen next! But I do know that some NaNoWriMo particpants have finshed their 50,000 words! Yes they’ve been posting their accomplishments. Congrats! Funny I could’nt spell that word in it’s correct unabridged form.

Anyway, I envy all who have completed their drafts. Yes, I do, and I can’t wait to go back after my draft is completed to read what I’ve wrote. Disastrous as it might be, I’ll let that thought go for a minute, or five days, the thrill of completing a first draft let alone doing it in 30 days is, well, a ride.

Maybe there’s hope for me afterall, hell I don’t know what I’m talking about, I’m fried!

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!
