NaNoWriMo day 10

I've written only 1100 so far today, but I'm confident I'll hit my promised 2000 this afternoon. I wanted to go ahead and give you a place to post your success because I'm going offline until Monday. I think it's really important for my writing life and mental health to take a break from the internetz now and then. Over the long weekend plus Monday, I'm writing 2000 words per day, or 8000 total.

Speaking of which--if you live in Birmingham, come and interact with other real people on Sunday! There's a NaNoWriMo write-in from 2 to 6 at Blackwell's Pub in Cahaba Heights.My squid hat and I will be there from 2 to 4. This write-in is sponsored by Southern Magic, the Birmingham chapter of Romance Writers of America, but everyone is welcome.

Now you! Please post:
1. Who you are
2. What sort of book you're writing
3. THE MOST IMPORTANT PART, because this is a writing community: cheers and well wishes for the person who posted right above you
4. How many words you said you would write on day 10
5. How many words you actually wrote on day 10 (NO EXCUSES--you did or you didn't)
6. How many words you're going to write on days 11 (Friday), 12 (Saturday), 13 (Sunday), and 14 (Monday).
