Nano, Day 22

Yipee! I passed the 40K mark! The goal for this weekend is 43K by the end of Sunday. A little less progress than I’ve been making but I’m factoring in the grocery shopping today, a girl’s night out tonight, and Christmas shopping tomorrow.

Wow, I’ve got a lot on the go this weekend. It will be interesting to see if I’m able to reach my wordage goal and how late I have to stay up to make it :-)

My characters have reached his planet, which still doesn’t have a name. She’s been sprung from prison and is recovering nicely from her life-threatening illness. They’ve been reunited in his former home, and he’s beginning to show his stubborn streak regarding his memory loss. They've met what's left of his family and she's just given them a run-down on how they met.

I am no longer worried about running out of story before I hit the 50K mark. I think I’ll still be adding words even after Nano ends. If that’s the case then even when the pressure’s off, I'd like to stay focused until I get this finished.

I owe it to myself to see where it takes me.

I'm proud of you, even if no one else is. Do I get a signed copy!

Thanks, I need that! First copy is definitely yours.

Of course by the time this happens you'll probably be almost as sick of the story as I will be. :-)
