For those of you who may be watching other people's word counts with a mixture of awe and resentment, I'd like to be clear that I admire everyone who is steadily writing, regardless of what their word count is.
There is an entire month to write, and if you're making progress, or even going down a wrong turn but plugging away, go you!
Don't get thrown by someone who has already 'won' NaNo.
Your book is still waiting to be brought forth.
This is a contest, but people win in a variety of ways and there are many, many winners. I hope you're one of them.
If you want to really feel inspired, look at FinBarrMcG's word count. He's stayed above the line all week, but just above, despite having a family of over-achievers. Our son did 10,000 the first day. Our daughter is at 12K with a full load of high school classes and after school activities, and don't even get me started on what a pain I am to be around this month. :)
I admire him. (And I still resent him for the year that he finished his first draft before I did, so while I might have 'won' earlier, I was still trying to get the book to a reasonable first draft ending and he was completely and totally done.)
So write. Winning is in your hands.----------
