NaNoWriMo Updates!

It's been a while since I've done any posts, so here I am! It's been a crazy few weeks, first having to live off of liquids for a day and a half before my colonoscopy on the 28th, (which went fine by the way, the prep was the worst part!), catching up with homework, continung with more homework, and now, NaNoWriMo. I'll admit, I was pretty nervous a few days before November 1st, but as soon as that day came, I surprised even myself by surpassing NaNo's daily wordcount goal of 1,667 words! Man, was I stoked! As soon as I saw that I had actually achieved, let alone surpassed, that goal I was shocked, but also ecstatic! I felt like if I could do that, then I could do anything! I was on top of the world!
And then night fell...
And the old doubts started to creep in...

But then Aaron, wonderful girl that she is, talked me off the ledge with a heartfelt pep talk consisting of, "no way in HELL am I letting you quit!" (Or switch stories, whih is what I felt like doing at the time), so instead of giving into the urge to trash all of the progress I made that day, I stuck with it, so thanks a ton, Aaron! Your a lifesaver! :)

NaNoWriMo Day 2: That day was a little harder, where I almost let exhaustion win over wordcount, but then I decided to just write in bed. I didn't get as far as I had the first day, but at least I ended up writing half a page (only 141 words), it was better then nothing, right? Right?! :P

NaNoWriMo Day 3: That day went a bit better, I pressed through my exhaustion and my sleep-filled brain and managaged to write 757 words, woo! :)

How is everyone else doing with thier word counts?

Damn straight, if I'm sticking this thing out so are you. Now start writing.

Also, let this be a lesson to all of you: I am not a nice person. Therefore, if you ever need comforting do not come to me.
