WHOOO HOOO You can do it! :D Keep on writing!

I've only written a handful of words since my forum's Night of Writing Narnianly. I got to see an early preview screening of the new Narnia movie last week and that kind of killed all my desire to write. ;) But I've got a week left, and 20k to write! *cracks knuckles*

If I can do it, so can you!

ohmygosh ohmygosh!! I'm over 40,000; in fact I have 9959 words to go!! I'm now officially a day ahead & will add to that tomorrow. I can't believe how close I am & now I have no doubt of finishing on time, if not a little early. I've done a couple of 4,000 word days, so the 9900 doesn't seem like much anymore.

WOW, I don't know when I've been so proud of myself! What a great feeling.

(of course, the book won't actually be done, just the 50,000 words finished. I'll have to keep writing to finish the story...)

I got to 42k last night, and even if I keep loosing time on other stuff, I manage to get the daily words in (plus a little bito of extra here and there) so I am hopeful... I think I should make it to 50k... only that the story won't possibly be done by then! I'll have to go on in december if I want to finsh it (for the sake of finishing it, lol)...

:) Got past the 50k mark yesterday night (or maybe, this morning) around 3am (I'm a night writer, LOL)... so I officially made it!
Only... I still have 6 chapters to write to actually finish the story! Oh well, I hope that will come in December... with 50k already written, it would be a pity not to finish it up!!

Hurrah for you!!! Way to go!! :respec::respec:

I'll be bringing up the rear right at the end, but will have no trouble making it. I was ahead but due to family visit & now driving home today I'll have a little catching up to do. I'm just worried that the site on Tuesday will be clogged down w/ everyone verifying, & I won't be able to get on!! :scream:

Thanks very much!!! I greatly appreciate the support!!

But I really really want the book, and for that you definitely have to be verified. But I will make it!!

WIN! WIN! WIN!

Here's my only wee little problem--according to NaNoWriMo, I have entered a whopping 110+ words. It should actually be half that--I think I updated twice somehow? Is there a way to de-submit so I can see the real word count, or do I just know for myself the real total is 55K (according to Word, it's 55,721).

:cheer2: Matry!! :cheer2: You can just enter your words in again (I just cut and paste from Word) and it will update the word count, even if it is lower.
