Well, as you can see on the tracker on top of this page, I am approaching 10,000 words.
The bad news is I am behind. By this time I should have something like 15K words written - a 5,000 word deficit.
The good news? I have already written more this month than last month. And with discipline and hard work, 5,000 words just isn't that far behind. Not with 21 days still to go on this thing.
So I haven't given up yet. Tomorrow I'll crawl out of bed early, fix myself some coffee, and write.
Because Nano or not, I am a writer. That's what I do. :)
