Don't Hurt Yourself Laughing

I haven't written anything on my NaNoWriMo 2007 novel since the 19th. Have you seen my word count? I have six, yes count them, 6, days left to write over 28,000 words. I had the nerve to read a book yesterday instead of writing (not even one single word.) We are looking at 4,712.66666666666 words per day for the next six days. Start taking bets and don't hurt yourself laughing at me.

  1. Do you have some sort of calculator gizmo that does that for you?

    Good luck! Sometimes it helps to be under pressure:)

  9. Yeah, I'm pretty much impressed with anyone who even attempts nanowrimo, myself, of course, not being in that category.

  10. I did contemplate starting a novel, but then I wound up getting drunk and passing out for two weeks, so already you are ahead of me!

    Good luck, my dear!

  11. Forget the false word count bar. Write what you want when you want.

  12. No laughing here. You can do it. We are your pep rally. Honestly, I don't think I could get that as much as you did. :)

  13. You are doing well. Everybody ends up writing at their own speed and in their own way. But it is good to push because it gets the process started.

  19. I don't laugh...my first final test (of 5!) is on Monday and I am sittign here and watching an episode of Friends instead of re-viewing Max Weber's three dimensional theory of stratification...procrastination is an easy level to achieve, it seems :)

    Writing is a lonely business to borrow a line from Sir John Gielgud
