Right now, word count is 24428. Still not half way there, with only just over a week to go. But I got this.
My writing plans last night were scuppered by having to meet some friends to receive some "stuff*". As is customary, this handover took place in a public house, leading to the consumption of hearty ales. My interlocutors turn out to be not entirely down with NaNoWriMo. Harsh words and phrases like "stupid", "waste of time", and "contributing to the ever growing mountain of shite books" were used. But I am in too deep to stop now.
In mere minutes I will be heading out to do my field research.
