44,196 words. Will post again after I meet up with my fellow NaNoing buddies.
I am only nine chapters in, which is good as I don't have to pad the actual story. But I have deviated sufficiently from the outline and require a bit of planning after each chapter. Will be so glad when November is over.
19975 words. I'll make up the stupid 25 words later, if I feel like it
Progress: 18030 words.
Chapters 1-3 are finished with a healthy start on 4, and it hasn't even been two weeks. I might just take the day off today. Then again, I said that yesterday and ended up writing a scene which almost got up to a daily quota. This year's NaNo is going swimmingly, unlike the last few times.
The differences between this year and all the others:
1) I decided to have as much fun as possible instead of stressing out over my wordcount
2) I'm working on a novel which I've been planning for roughly two years, for which I've already scrapped the actual first draft and about 7 outlines

After doling out "how to ask someone out advice", I was about to tag on the usual "Of course I'm not a sterling example of confidence lawl". Then I realized that I confessed an attraction to the Ugly Bastard first. Twice.
