The NaNo novel is underway, and now I can share my progress with you via the National Novel Writing Month Progress Meter (NaNoWriMoProMe):


The graphic at right (you might have to scroll down) will update regularly as I update the word count—daily, I hope. That way, if I succeed in hitting the 50k mark this year, I do so publicly; if I fail, I do that publicly, too. I don't want to jinx anything, but I've already decided that if push comes to shove this month, the novel has to take backseat to studying, catching up, finishing my note for the journal, etc. That makes it unlikely I'll “win” NaNo this year, but it's still fun trying. Plus, I'm really loving what I've got started so far; I think it has more promise than anything I've tried in previous years. Maybe that will make the difference. I guess we'll see, won't we? SO how's your novel progressing? ;-)

Pretty well, but all I've got to contend with are a full-time job and a mostly understanding wife. Your life right now sounds a bit more frantic than mine. Good luck!

Dude. I left a comment on your site but the more I think about this the more it blows me away. You wrote 20k words in three days?!? I mean, really: How? How many hours/day were you writing? It's just incredible. If you have any advice or tips, I'd love to hear them.
