Too late?

I'm better, but 22,000 ish words behind. Is it really worth stressing out for the next 14 days ....

Probably, and sadly, not.

Oh well, there's always 2010.

gotta get it together

I have to write, write and write some more. I can't end today too far behind as it becomes the slippery slope to doom, gloom and tears.

Damn, if only this cough would let up for a few hours. It's bloody miserable. Miserable I tell 'ee! Yargh!


Yep, I'm supposed to be at 4839 - and by the end of today (4th day) at 6452. And where am I? 1169. Am I disillusioned? Well, yes I am. Quite as disillusioned as I was last year, and the year before that, too. BUT I will prevail! I will kick ass and type words until I am screaming ahead of the pack.

Word! :)

stuck in the phlegm,

It's not that I can't write, I Can. Yet this bloody phlegmy flu is taking all of my energy and leaving my mind totally vacuous.

The clock is just about to herald the 2nd Nov and my word count is a poxy zero.

A brand new NaNo for 2009!

Excited though I am at the thought of November the first and the 'off', I still haven't a clue as to what I'm going to write. Not the vaguest idea and only a week left to have an idea in ... if you see what I mean.

By this time last year I'd almost completed an outline (the holy grail of serious authors whose names begin with 'C'), and 'twas a good outline and worthy.

Ah well. C'est la vie.

Lots of new people are taking part this year. Marty, BK, Rose, Alisa, Kapitano to name but a few. Hopefully, with all the egging on that'll be available 2009 will be a breeze ... yeah, right! ;)

Upwards and onwards.
