I did it!! I reached 5,071 words in one day! WOOHOOOOOOO!

I'm so proud of myself ^^ The most I have ever written in one day prior to this, was 2,416. I've doubled that, man. Aren't I awesome? ;D

This means, that I have also reached 40,500!! YAAY! Only 9,500 words left! I broke 40,000 tonight! Be proud ;D

OK, so I may not have finished my novel like someone I know *coughMattcough* but I am still extremely happy with what I have done :) Not only that, but I also started working on my huge english project! I might just be ok! :D

Somebody buy me a cookie on Monday ;D

Here's the cookie list:
Katie, for getting back on track!
Matt, for finishing first!
Me, for reaching 40,000 and writing 5,000 in one night!

Anyone else? ;)

(who's going to buy these things? lol)

I've decided that the only way I can possibly get to 50,000 words in a week is...to go RANDOM and CRAZY and WRITE COMPLETELY UNRELATED INSANITY IN WHICH THE MAIN CHARACTERS FIND BOOKS LYING AROUND IN THE FOREST and READ THEM! OUT LOUD! FOR NO REASON WHATSOEVER!!1!!two!

Of course it's not cheating!

I totally wrote 4,265 words today. Too bad none of them had anything to do with my original plot. XD

Guys, I'm getting low on Determination. Help!

As of this moment, I am resolved to write from now (4:40) until at least 7:00 this evening. If my typing speed is up and doing well, I might even be able to hit 5000 words by then! Cheer me on! I have yet to do 3000 words in one day... so I'm hopeful ;)

So, please, if I manage to get to 5000 words today, somebody bring me a cookie on Monday! I need the motivation!

Off to write now, wish me luck!!

Well, it looks like I'll be finished tomorrow, or, at the very latest, before school on Tuesday.

Not to sound conceited, but you can all bow before my awesome.

Speaking of which, I had two theme songs this year which were equally awesome. Here they are for your pleasure/convenience.

Download Reel Big Fish - "The Fire"
Download Orange Range - "*~Asterisk~"

See you Tuesday.

Just kidding.

something I just noticed:

Nova Scotia is ranked 64th out of 271 places that are doing NaNoWriMo, right between Alabama: North and California: Elsewhere. Currently, Nova Scotia has 438761 words.

Keep going, people! Week three starts tomorrow!
