I gave up when the computer I was using crashed. It sucked too, it was near the beginning and I had had 10k, so I was above par for the day. Stupid technology.

It's NaNoWriMo. National novel writing month, Mimzy.
Kanen, you scare me. I'm going to update my word count now! You can't have the everlasting gloating rights!

So, I wasn't doing this Camp NaNo thing since I was finishing up one of my novels at the beginning of June, and then I didn't have an idea for another one until June 9th. But... seeing as I've written 45,000 words since the 9th, I guess I was subconsciously participating?

You have more words than me, in 2/3 of the days.

Way to make me feel like crap.

It's not all the same story, though. I wrote 32,000 and then decided to put that story on hold, picked up a story from last August that already had 32,000 words, and am almost finished with that now. My summer sort of ends in a week and a half, so I've been trying to do as much writing as I can before then.

EDIT: Next year, we should word war or something.
