It’s going to be a busy week: Work. Thanksgiving. Black Friday. Family traditions (shopping, eating, decorating, etc).
Lots and lots of writing to finish up 50,000 words to Idle Hands. Even though I have through next Sunday, my personal goal is to reach 50,000 words by Friday. I’m mainly doing this because the “confirmation” instructions sent out by NaNoWriMo have alluded to the fact that their word-count might differ from my own when I undergo the process of validating. I’m not quite sure why it would be different, but I don’t want to be caught off guard on the night of the 30th by suddenly realizing I have 1000-2000 words more to write in order to reach the 50,000 word milestone. Luck favors the prepared, as they say, so I plan to validate my word count with NaNoWriMo on Friday, just in case I need the weekend to make up any differential between their “official” word count and my own.
And speaking of which, here are my NaNoWriMo stats for November 24:
