Another millstone

Milestone, another milestone reached.

40142 / 50000

Completely pointless factoid: the official NaNoWriMo word counter gives me word counts identical to those from the unix wc utility, which makes me suspect they implemented it using wc. And you know, why the hell not? BBEdit's word counter reports about 150 over that count; probably it has a more generous list of word boundary tokens. Or something.

Most of the words were late in the novel, during the very last section. Set in mumble, a place I have never been and am therefore nervous about setting anything in. They move on to grrble next, which I feel better about getting right. Also, I spent some time in the first section increasing the level of character torture a bunch. Which was painful to write, but I think was necessary.

I can now switch over to the holiday project without worry. I want to have that finished early next week, like Wednesday at the latest. Then, CYA, which acronym I persist in misreading.

Huh. Your widget is goofy, too. I added a break tag just before it, and it settled down.

Of course, you may have just Written so Much that you Broke it....

Well done. I look forward to seeing this. mumbles and grbles and all.

Then, CYA, which acronym I persist in misreading.

*gigglesnort* You know, I never misread it until just now. I really need to get on mine. I wrote up to the sex, now I just need to write the sex. I think once I get past that part everything else will flow wonderfully. I plan on spending my morning tomorrow, doing laundry and writing. Staying downstairs, away from the computer and brian sucking RPGs. It sounds like a good plan. *nods*

I am thinking of having no sex in mine between the two in the main pairing... just the promise of it to come. Or I might change my mind and have it be the last thing that happens. Dunno. *makes complicated shoulder wriggle of indecision*
lol. Well I kinda need the sex. It was part of the request. I just need the space and privacy to write it. It's hard to write that when either a) parents are in the room or b)child is in room.
Two years. *headdesk* I've only been in the fandom for two years, and was not signing up for ficathons before then.
I think it has something to do with slash. Oh yeah, it's the No Slash For A Day Cover Your Ass Boys ficathon.

Okay, that was funnier in my head than it came out typed.
