Yet Another NaNo Update

[Let me know if you're getting bored of these; I can always make them private. But there's only a week left now, anyway :) ]

So, after yesterday's disastrously crap evening, today went fine. I got more than the staple 1,666 words, which at least means I'm less behind than I was yesterday. And I've broken through the 35,000 word barrier, so there's fewer than 15,000 words to go, which seems quite doable once you've done it a couple of times in the month already.

Favourite line of the evening:

"It’s a disturbing fact of modern life that in a city, you’re never more than ten feet away from a Tesco Metro."

I'm enjoying the updates - and cheering you on every step of the way!

Heh. Good to know. It's really quite a rollercoaster; I'm starting to believe that the horrible blocked days are actually necessary for the nice flowing days to come along. On the other hand, there's the danger that if I start thinking like that, it'll be difficult to tell the difference between a naturally difficult day and a day when I'm just being spectacularly lazy, like normal...

Have to admit I've just been sneaking a peek at the very civilised preview they give you on Nanowrimo and now I'm even more impatient for you to finish :-)

I read that first chapter ages ago and have been IMPATIENTLY WAITING FOR MORE!!!!

Pipe down at the back there!

I'm not even sure I'm going to let anyone read it, you know. Who knows, maybe I'll burn it on December 1st :) Might be quite a liberating experience.

Um... not unless you want me to BEAT your arse.
