Went to town on the NaNo novel today to make up for the carpet cleaning absence. Very happy to be over the 40K mark; I think I might finish before Thanksgiving. Trying not to jinx it so never mind . . . .

Wrote right up to within blinking distance of 40K, but had to stop to finish the prep for the carpet cleaners tomorrow. A bit of a slog today because of my achy breaky back and some depressing news about a personal friend. Still, if life wasn't messing with me I wouldn't feel normal. Onward.

Hours worked: Have no idea.

Hopped between the writing and getting the house prepped for carpet cleaning later this week, and since I was only able to write ten or fifteen minutes at a time I didn't bother to watch the clock. Just now as I tallied my new words I was surprised to see how much I had written on the NaNo novel. The extra may come in handy tomorrow when we finish up the final moving of the furniture; my lower back is already singing the Ave Maria of pain.

Hours worked: 3 (no breaks)

After I wrapped up my ghost writing gig this past weekend my client offered me another job that starts immediately, so I mostly worked on the outlines for that today. I did get in three very productive hours tonight on the NaNo novel; I think all that outlining had me turbo charged to write some story. :)

I had probably the best writing day so far this month today, with everything just rushing out to get into the story now that I've added the new idea. Very tired but happy. Skipping editing tonight so I can go fall on my face and snooze.
