I haven't been avoiding you because I haven't been writing. I've actually been avoiding you because I HAVE been writing. Night continues to be pretty much the only time that I can fit my NaNoWriMo time in and usually by the time I write as much as I can, my eyes are crossing and my brain has ceased to function and if I came over here to update you would probably get sentences like:
Tuesday Layla gnomed a magic chimney wing and kiwi up the secret asparagus cook.
So you can see why I haven't posted. But I wanted to let you know that it's going.
I passed the half way mark, which completely shocked me. I almost caught up (only 800 words away) and then I flamed out again (stupid research paper). I've introduced the villain, though he hasn't really done anything yet... that we know of. And am now in the middle of a gnome invasion, which is adding a lot of tension, hero development and word count. So all good things.
Quick look at my standings and then I'm off to tap out 100 words or so before my brain falls out.
OH! I also discovered that I can actually TYPE IN MY SLEEP! Isn't that amazing?! The only thing is, that everything I write, though it is real words, makes no sense whatsoever. I was also too out of it to realize that those words needed to be saved for posterity so I could show you all how ridiculous my subconscious is and I deleted the sections before saving and closing - most of which I think I did in my sleep too.
I am at: 27,968
Should be: 30,006

17 STRAIGHT DAYS OF WRITING SOMETHING
That is pretty cool people. Pretty. Cool.
