Exciting news -- I have a new 'writing buddy'! A woman who lives right here in Oregon, out in Hillsboro. (Which means there's always the possibility of actually speaking with her on the phone, or even meeting her!)
She considerably further along with her novel, having completed almost 18,000 words to date. I'm nearing 10,000, though -- and in a mood to write!
9,478 / 50,000
Yes, if a person happens to be hung up on the daily-word-count method of doing this, on November 10 I should have been at 16,000 words. Frankly, I'll worry if I get to November 30 and I'm only at 30,000. (smile) But until that happens, I'm not worried at all.
On that note, I'll go knock off another 500 words so I can make my 10,000...
