Closing in on the end of Nanowrimo

Posted on Friday, November 27, 2009 by Melanie

Or as Lyndon put it this afternoon when he ambled into my office, "Ah, the gunfire sound of Mellie frantically pounding away on the keys." So far the body count stands at two, Poe and Dodgson realize they're on the trail of a sadistic serial killer, and another target has already been sighted. I'm hoping I can put in a bit of extra wordage over the long weekend and hit 50K by Sunday -- that won't actually be the end of the novel, of course, but it's the halfway mark and it means I can take the rest of Sunday off and, you know, rest.

Oh, who am I kidding? I'll wind up trimming the bushes so that we can put the Christmas lights up or cleaning the kitchen. Anyway, the current wordcount:

43352 / 50000 words. 87% done!

    This is going to be like the last one, I think. I'm still below 15000 words ... there's no way I'm going to hit 50000 before the end of the month.
