We just hit 100,025 words as of ten minutes ago. In terms of midnight-to-midnight days, it took us just under 29, a full day less than we had to use. There are still a couple scenes to add before the story itself is complete, but it's pretty close, and I think first we're going to take a well-deserved break. Also, a happy dance. *dancedancedance*

We're about 1,200 words behind as of midnight, and it looks like tomorrow is going to be another 5,000 word day. As long as we don't fall too much behind because of Thanksgiving and the fact that we won't be able to do anything except by phone Saturday, we should do well. We should finish. It's actually close enough, now that we're barely more than a week out from the finish, that I can actually fathom finishing, and finishing wit as many words as we need. And let me tell you, that is something both extraordinarily satisfying and stomach-turningly anxious at the same time. I'm close to burned out, and I think that we'll both be very, very glad when this whole thing is over, win or no.

There's an hour and a half left in the day and we have buffer. This is the first time we've been ahead of schedule since the 7th. So that's something to be proud of, I suppose. :)

The Doctor and I hit 50,000 words at a little past 1:30 this morning, with this epic post from the Docter Herself:


Yeah. But! It is awesome to hit halfway, and I am enjoying a couple of celebratory drinks whilst trying to build up a buffer for the Thanksgiving holiday, because I know we'll get less work done that weekend. Whether said buffer will turn out better or worse for the influence of mango rum, only time will tell!

44,800 words, almost exactly, at three in the morning. If we want to be on track, we need 50k by midnight, and I think it's doable, but it'll take a lot of work. I only wish AIM hadn't eaten my ~560-word post, which made me redo the whole thing. Altogether it took about an hour and a half, when the initial post took twenty-five minutes to write. But it's okay. I got something written that at least closely resembled the original post, and we kept going forward. Really, that's all we can do.

12,800 words, which puts us well ahead of where we need to be. Almost an entire day, as a matter of fact, and I'm very pleased about that. In fact, if I actually stop putting off typing up the scene that's sitting in the notebook in front of me, we will be a whole day ahead. Hopefully we'll be able to keep up this pace, and use the buffer as a means to have a nice, relaxing, fluff-filled Sunday. But first, sleep~

Today is something of an early morning, at least as far as writing goes; the Doctor has the day off, and I'm going off to vote in a couple hours, so we decided to get as much done as we can in the time before that. Right now we're sitting just shy of 5600 words, which means we've got about a thousand to go before we hit today's quota. At the rate we're going, we should more than smash that, and have a nice comfortable buffer for tomorrow's work. So, I'm going to settle in under a nice warm blanket and enjoy my tea, because I feel like I've earned it :)

Just over 4,000 words written between the Doctor and I before midnight, which puts us 1/25 of the way finished in just a day. I can't say whether we'll be able to keep up this kind of pace for the whole month, but if we can come close to it, we should do fairly well, and that's something I'm quite happy with.

NaNo time!

The CrazyBusyMonthofWriting (also known as NaNoWriMo) is begun! It's technically not an official one, since the Doctor and I are co-writing, but we're aiming for 100k words total, so it's good enough for me. So, wish me luck ^^

(Also, if I have any spare time, I should *finally* get around to finishing up Forget Me Not, since the weekend craziness that was Ren Faire is over. So wish me luck with that, too!)
