I'm at 12,096 words, so I'm behind, I guess. 5k per three days... so I should be around 16 or 17k if I were going for the nanowrimo word count. I think I won't sabotage what I have, though, and just be glad I'm doing *something* every day and, perhaps, creating a type of habit I won't kick afterward. Just working on words, again, has been fascinating and getting my own motivation for it has been useful. I really appreciate the many solid and useful comments by rephetibel and flit, as well as the comments by archangelbeth, space_parasite, neko_san, and diony. You probably won't believe how much even the one word comments are appreciated.
