2,419 words: Rocking the novel

I'm happy to say that I am still kicking butt at NaNoWriMo.  Three days, and so far my total word count for November is 9,251, with 2,419 of those having been added today.  I decided the night of the kickoff party that my personal goal was 2,000 words a day, and so far I've gotten there every day.  Let's hope I can keep it up!

Another good thing has happened: More of the plot has fallen into place.  I knew where I was going with it, but hadn't entirely decided how I was going to get there, if you know what I mean.  But tonight I figured that part out, and if I say so myself, it's so perfect I don't know why I didn't see it before!  It's a relief to have worked it out, let me tell you, and with that problem solved I don't see why I wouldn't be able to meet (or even exceed) my overall word count goal of 80k.

Unfortunately the word count widgets, which I put in my sidebar every year to show my daily progress, are not available yet.  I hope they will be available soon, as I feel like my sidebar is a bit naked without one!
