1. I’m afraid I’ve fallen off the wagon. I love my story, but my thesis takes precedence. I’ve decided to count my word count there toward the goal for the month.

  2. I *was* doing pretty well. The last thirty-six hours or so may have put the kibosh on the whole deal, though. Power outage at both home and work + The Long Dark of Washington winter days + no battery-powered lamp + being in charge of servers living in a building that didn’t get power back for over twelve hours = a lot of lost writing time. Add to that a reading assignment that took up another morning and evening’s worth of writing time, and I’m not sure I’m going to catch up.

    Gonna try, though.

    I guess I’m lucky. No sore hands or cramping here. I write a lot by hand year ’round, though. Have the writer’s bump to prove it, for better or worse.

    I’m RosieCotton over at the NaNoWriMo site. (It’s a long story…)

    My work schedule suddenly changed a little earlier in the month, leaving me not enough time to do the entire project by hand. Since I can type and make minor point revisions at a far faster rate than I can handwrite, I’ll be doing this year’s NaNoWriMo with a keyboard. However, I’ve got a quarter of an A5 notebook stuffed with notes on characters, backstory, and general plot.

    So far, I’ve done about 20% of the above note-taking at home, where I’ve been using woodcased pencils on and off. The rest of the time though, I’m using a leadholder.
