NaNoWriMo: day 8 and still counting

I am writing in little spurts today, due to the nature of what I am doing. Little by little my word count is getting up to the daily average to keep on target if 50,000 is divided by 30. I also updated my "novel info" page and the "novel excerpt" (which is not really an excerpt yet since it is not in the novel ... but it will be). So far I am at 12,954 words and still building. I probably won't get much more done until 2:30, when the next round of this thing where I am gets started and I will have about an hour and fifteen minutes uninterrupted - minus a few little tasks I have to do at the beginning. So probably more like just over an hour of free (monitoring) time to type away and, just maybe, get to the 13,333 to be on target.

You can click through to go to my author's page on the NaNoWriMo website (which is running very smoothly and efficiently now that the start-up is done and they've been able to bring two more servers online) to read the very short synoposis and non-excerpt excerpt.
