THAT'S RIGHT!  
32514 / 50000 (65.03%)


32,500, as promised, and with 4 minutes to spare before midnight, even!

I am now the proud pwner of 7,000 words in one day on something that's not fanfic. Yay! I think I mostly wrote things that made sense to the story, although I probably dragged on a lot, and once I had to start a whole new section for the last 1000 words or so, so I decided to write from Cara's POV so I could just fling out some word salad about how being a bipolar genius in charge of something in the space program probably makes it really hard to take showers often enough, and sometimes your carpet seems like a real threat to your body and soul.

Tomorrow - 40K or bust? Surely 7.5K can't be that much harder than 7K...

(They haven't even left Earth yet, guys. This is why I should never be encouraged to write as many words as possible. It's basically a long string of character studies that will eventually get them to Mars, where exciting things will actually happen, but probably not until December or January. Damn, am I ever jealous of those people who had an outline going into this thing.)

ETA: I wish I could go "show of hands of people who have filtered me over the last three days due to excessive nano codependent showoffitude!" but those people would have filtered me, so it would be a very small number of actual hands shown.

ETA2: Holy crap, I just reread this post, and it makes absolutely no sense. I hope at least some of the things I wrote today in my novel are more salvageable!

If your novel makes half as much sense as this post, then you're 50 times the literary genius that Stephanie Meyer is. Long story short: YOU'RE FINE. NOW SLEEP. :D

This post makes more sense than mine did last night, so... I think you're OK!

Yeah...I still don't have a clear outline ;)

As if AG wasn't enough to make me love Cara... I want this show to be real so I can watch her be like this.
