NaNo Day 9

November 9th, 2008 (01:57 am)

Not necessarily a shout-out, but by the end of today, folks should be at 15k. I'm barely keeping up to where I'd been on day 6 (which was still vastly behind). As it is, I'm starting the day at ~8500 words. While I'd hoped to get caught up this weekend, I get the feeling it simply won't be possible (unless I lock myself up and write for 24hrs). Possible in English? Very. In Japanese...... I think my writing speed is ~1/4-1/3 what it is in English. >.> Add to that a not-particularly interesting story at the moment, and staying focussed becomes very difficult. *sigh* Still, I'm hopeful about getting through this and getting past the goal line. (I'm not beaten yet! Not by a long shot!) ^_^

Personal target for today: to reach 12k O_O;

Shall see how close I get. :P

And before I forget, if you haven't done so, y'all might want to take a moment and *back up your NaNo*! Email it to yourself, stick it on Google Docs, copy it to another USB key, print it out...... heck put it in a private post (or three) that only you can read on LJ even. You never know when something like file corruption, or worse yet, a system crash might occur. It's always good to play it safe. ^_^

Feel free to tell how your word count is going! ^_^

Next shout out will be on day 15--the 25k mark. ^^;;

Day's total: 12 482 *splat*]

Yay! Hang in there! ^o^

*laughs* True, but I'm seriously hoping to shrink that gap over a bit more time. ^_^ That plus I'm definitely wanting to end at least a few days early if not more. I'm seriously worried about how the word counter will react this year. >.>
