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*

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!

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!)

I just finished eleven solid hours of roleplaying. Not D&D, mind you, but text-over-AIM roleplaying. And frankly, I would love for it to continue even longer, but it's four in the morning and the Doctor is exhausted. So, I think I'll just play a game or something for an hour or so until I need to sleep. Today has been a good day.

Chapter two is officially written, and is mostly edited. Now I just need to sit on it until Sunday and see if there are any last-minute changes I want to make before it goes up (and there always are).

Now on to more (less) fun things, aka Planning for D&D! Killmenow.

I realized three things more or less simultaneously last night. First, there aren't really any good U.N. Owen accordion arranges. Second, Russia is ridiculously similar to Flandre in some ways. Third, an accordion arrange of U.N. Owen would be perfect for a creepy Russia fanvid.

So, I got a .midi of U.N. Owen and played around with it in Fruity Loops, wound up with a decent-sounding accordion arrange, and now I'm gonna make a Russia fanvid. Wish me luck.

So D&D was... well, I've never had a session get quite as derailed as this one did. There were supposed to be fights. There were none. We finished three hours earlier than planned. There were pot-brownies being fed to Umber Hulks, and the spontaneous creation of Bodhi, a fully-baked Dwarven dealer who was his own personal roving contact high. But, the gang seemed to have fun with it at least. I wish the evening had lasted longer, D&D or no, but the Doctor had to go home early and catch up on sleep before Faire tomorrow. But, we got to be goofy and try on various hats (as well as an errant lampshade) before she left, and I get to see her tomorrow, so that's something to look forward to.

Incidentally, I'll be wearing Steampunk garb to Faire, at least tomorrow, mainly because my normal garb's too hot to wear until it cools down a bit more. So I made a pretty snazzy bowtie out of some spare fabric I had lying around, which puts me another piece closer to a finished outfit. Now all I really need is to find some old welding goggles I can paint, and I'll have everything I need. Well, except a frock coat, but sadly that's beyond both my budget and my limited sewing skills. So goggles'll have to do.

Tea, sir!

Last night, as a consequence of staying up 'til six to plan for today's D&D session and finding that hot tea was the only caffeinated beverage in the house, I got back into my hot tea habit. I've been drinking the stuff pretty much nonstop since. Since I've been running low on the three or four blends of black tea I usually drink, I decided to delve into the Big Bag o'Tea and actually separate the tins out by type. I had thought that most of the rest of what was in there was green tea (ick), but it turns out there were about five more black teas that I didn't even know about. So now I've got a nice Darjeeling steeping (<3) and I'm actually enjoying the prospect of going through some of this tea in over the next couple of weeks.

So I finally went and got a DW account. Looks pretty nifty so far, way better than Livejournal at the very least. So hooray for starting over, new name, new email, new friends. Well, no friends yet, but that'll happen eventually. Sooooo yay for typing to no-one in particular. And now back to tonight's regularly scheduled RP.
