NaNoWriMo day 17

Are we the only four people still writing? I hope we are just the four people still posting. Week three of NaNoWriMo gets very lonely!

I said I would write 2000 yesterday and I wrote the big 612. I felt terrible about this. I've been having huge problems with this book, OBVIOUSLY. But last night I woke up with the answer, which is the first time that ever happened to me I think.

So! Today, tomorrow, Sunday, and Monday, I am going to write 9500 words. I really don't want to because I am running the Ruben Studdard Half Marathon on Sunday, but I have to if I'm going to win NaNo.

And, hey--do you need an extra dose of shame? lisadunick hasn't posted on this blog in a while, but judging from her Facebook page, she won NaNo last night.

How about you?

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 17
5. How many words you actually wrote on day 17 (NO EXCUSES--you did or you didn't)
6. How many words you're going to write on days 18 (Friday), 19 (Saturday), 20 (Sunday), and 21 (Monday)
