Currently Listening To: Scream, by Avenged Sevenfold.

Got up, warmed up and am shooting to hit 40,000 by the end of today. Started at 10:36AM

Let’s see how that works out, given my other plans for the day. I’ll keep this post updated.

Currently Listening To: Dignity, by Bullet For My Valentine

Let me assure you, this is some dirty (editing wise) writing. Write or Die tends to make me write like that sometimes. After all, if I start losing words, that would be very bad!

Currently Listening To: The Running Free, by Coheed and Cambria

After a bowl of broccoli cheddar soup and a can of Coke (oh, and an episode of Spongebob) I have broken the 35k mark. Many say after this mark, reaching that 50k milestone becomes a piece of cake.

By the way it’s a coincidence that the last three artists I’ve listened to have come in alphabetical order.

Currently Listening To: Afterlife, by Avenged Sevenfold

I was out watching a foreign film that I had already committed to. So about four hours was gone to that.

Still, I seem to be making good progress. Had some delicious lamb curry for dinner to help boost my energy…thought it might put me to sleep later.

Currently Listening To: Overkill, by Motorhead

In just over 12 hours, I managed to write over 11k words. I am feeling the drain on my brain (hey that rhymed!).  I still got a little time left before the next day begins so I’ll write some more (maybe hit 41k?).

I really feel my ideas just flowing out. It’s a mess, but editing it will be fun!

Currently Listening To: Numb, by Disturbed.

Under 10k left before I hit the goal! Can I do it before midnight tomorrow?

Let’s see what happens. I am feeling drained and will need some rest. Fortunately tomorrow is Sunday and not Monday!

For fun, here is how my stats for NaNoWriMo this year are going:

Under ten thousand words to write!
