Plus I just got so involved with editing and various minor projects that it's what...the 15th and I only have about 2,000 new words. Not 20,000 mind you, but 2,000. That is taking into account the fact that I made some sweeping cuts, and replaced the cut words with better words. So my new word count is probably double what I could actually verify.
I guess the reason I'm posting this is to encourage people who may be floundering in the word count. Even though word count is the goal in NaNo, putting down even one paragraph that you really love is it's own triumph. Even though I won't reach my goal this month, I feel really good about the way my project is moving forward.
Happy Noveling, Scribes!
