And updated on Friday, November 5, 2010:
Just a brief note here to explain why my NaNoWriMo calendar is showing yellow for yesterday and today, rather than my usual bright green. It means I'm not a total failure, but I'm slipping a bit. I added 1383 words on Thursday, which is obviously below goal. However, my past three days were enough over goal that the four day total (6955 words) I was above the average. Today, I did slightly better, coming in at 1422 words, for a total of 8377, a grand 42 words beyond the five-day goal.
So I'm making progress, but am I a success? Maybe, but maybe not. I've managed to eat up most of the margin of safety I accumulated at the beginning of the week. Can't let many more days like this happen.
