Wooo, so it's November second!

Yesterday was an awesome day, I must say. Got home form college at around 1pm and set to work right away, warring with TW chatroomies. Then I took a bit of a break to do some painting, and then went back to writing for the rest of the night, warring on and off. I have a milk-carton of tropical fruit juice and a whole bar of Cadbury's left from my stockup (which actually wasn't as big as I thought it was . . . ) and I reached 6,041 just before midnight.

Sanity levels are about so-so, which is good, because I have homework. D: So they'll probably shoot up in the next couple days. Wrote another 1000 words during a free period today, and I'm about to get going with it again to get a nice squashy buffer in case the worst happens.

Oh, and I'm not writing what I intended to write, but continuing a short I started in August which should be finished around the 20k mark, and I've also gone back to an old story I wrote a bit for, but never did anything with. I've been using a character from that story in TW's character chats, so he's been yabbering away in my head for weeks, and I thought I'd give him some storyspace.

Anyhoo, no rants on the horizon yet, though maybe later this week . . .

EDIT: Also, serious kudos for Charlie, who comes around here sometimes, for reaching 50k on only day 2. O.o

*randomly drops in on NaNo thread*

Charlie got to 50,000 in two days!? Jeez.

*disappears again and goes off to congratulate Charlie*

Day three and I'm just over 10k.

Also, my stepmother gave birth to my baby sister Molly on the first.

This week has been gooooooood. xD

Because, only three people have said they're doing this (if you're doing it and you haven't posted in the sign-in thread or updated in this forum then get to it! ) and we're in different timezones. There was a group in chat on Tuesday, but none of them wanted to war, and there's hardly anyone online when I'm around.

I'm just over 6000 on today. I think I'm going to make the 50000 on the 30th and no sooner, but it's going pretty good.

Will, my time-travelling character, has met a conspiracy theorist. Botherations and matchsticks.

I congratulate everyone who has made this far in NaNoWriMo! You are amazing! So am I, hehe.

I like my NaNo work and love my characters. They are funny and never have failed to amaze me with what they do and how they do it.

Just ask the blind man -- he saw it too.

I always war when Lily asks me to.

Last time, I warred with her two times in a row.

So, whenever you people want to war and can't find anyone to war with, just shoot me a VM. Lyk fo' seriyus. *winks*
