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*]

*blink* What's SeaMonkey? I think if you use Opera there might be compatibility issues, but I thought it was supposed to be supported by both MSIE and Firefox...? *confused*

Naru's being a pain... being a bigger than normal pain this time. Masako's being very unpredictable. I don't think I've ever written this much with or about her before. ^^; Gah, her manner of speech drives me bonkers! >.<; Good luck with your NaNo! I wonder if I'll be able to justify any translating tonight... ^_^

LOL! SeaMonkey is a browser and will support google documents. My computer flat out told me that Mozilla Firefox wouldn't support it at all. I have no clue why.

I wonder if I'll get any writing done?

*laughs* Well, you could have my situation. Bou-san's left the scene to run back to Tokyo for an emergency after getting a call from Umekichi. O_O; I really wish I could describe Naru's reaction when he heard Umekichi was Bou-san's cat! ^^;;
