NaNoWriMo, Day Eight: Or Election Day!


It’s Election Day! Did you vote? I hope you voted. When I turned 18, that was my present to myself—registering to vote. I’m a geek. I own it.

Anyhoo, I promised to work more last night, but I wanted to finish early tonight so I could sit on my rear end and watch the returns. Until the stress gets to be too much to bear, then I’m going to bed. I did, however, manage to do two hour-long dictation sessions, which got me over 10k today, which was awesome. If I get off my duff and do it tomorrow, I might hit 20k without taking all day on it. So I don’t have much to say today, just an update on my counts.

I had a good day today, in a relatively short period of time. I may do more tonight, depending on my capacity for lucidity, but I’m calling it now because, let’s be clear, I probably won’t. And if I do hit 20k tomorrow, I’ll post my spreadsheet showing my session breakdown and how I got there. You want to see that, don’t you? You totally do.
