NaNoWriMo days 11-14

I made my goal on day 10! I am still writing on day 14, but at 2946 for the last four days, I'm pretty certain I'm not going to make my goal of 8000. In other words, shame's mother kicked him out of the house, my mother felt sorry for him and let him move in with us temporarily, and WHY DID SHE DO THAT? DIDN'T SHE EVER WATCH ROSEANNE?

Here on day 14 I am sitting at 16,777 for the month, and yet I am feeling strangely optimistic about my chances of winning NaNoWriMo, because I have done a lot of plot and character work in the last few days and I have a much better sense of where I'm going. I need only 2076 words a day to make it. Tomorrow I will write 3000. Really.

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 days 11-14
5. How many words you actually wrote on days 11-14 (NO EXCUSES--you did or you didn't)
6. Your total for the month so far
7. How many words you need to write each day for the next 16 days in order to win--that's 50,000 minus your total so far, and then divide that number by 16
8. How many words you're going to write on day 15
