NaNoWriMo day 22

I said I would write 3000 words yesterday and I did. I am so proud of myself because those words did not come easy, and my son and I baked two cakes and a batch of cupcakes somewhere in the middle of them.

I will write 3000 words every day from today through Sunday. I don't want to, and I think it will be really hard, but I have to in order to win. I keep reminding myself of what I have been telling people about NaNoWriMo, because it's true: there will never in your life be a convenient month to write a novel.

How did you do?

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 22
5. How many words you actually wrote on day 22 (NO EXCUSES--you did or you didn't)
6. How many words you're going to write on days 23-27
