I actually had a really good day. Got 3500 words done, encompassing the first chapter. I'll have it up on a blog eventually so you can read it if you want.

I just wrote about 65,000 words last month, so... no. My novel's done. But I didn't know they had a NaNoWriMo in the summer...

I had an amazing day yesterday. 5321 words. But seeing as I pushed past midnight, it counts for both.

I will say, I'm slightly cheating. I'm starting the novel after having written three chapter(12 k) of it. Not counting that, though, do I guess it's ok?

I don't consider that cheating, Kanen. It's the words that get written during the month. The end.

You all are making me feel left out, but I guess if I had wanted to participate, I would have been thinking about it last December, not joining in on the second day. So have fun without me, and I expect you all to win. Here's your one chance to be superior to me. xP
