I've just won the NaNoWriMo. Made wordcount although the story has a lot more to be written before it's finished.

Ikea  
That place is deadly to the budget! They have so many good deals.

I went to get all new shelving, a bedside table and a lamp.

I came home with the shelves I wanted (planned and a better priced set than I'd looked at originally in the catalogue), a CD/DVD tower (planned), a nightstand and then I went kind of crazy: tea towels were only 49 cents each and on down the list of household things I needed. Came back with two overflowing Ikea bags (the kind you can hang on the handles of their big carts).

They've got so much more stuff than I thought they did.

I'm staying more or less on target this year, with a current wordcount of 14913 words. According to the website guidelines, the suggested wordcount at the end of the 9th was 15000 words, though sometimes I'm writing less and others more.

In other news, I do not recommend leaving pyrex on a hot stove element. It makes a very pretty and noisy explosion when it breaks (and a heck of a mess to clean up).

I made it to over 5,000 words. I've managed to catch up on the story, although its' not exactly going anywhere just yet. The main character is still writing the school paper she was writing at the start of the story. Thing is, there's a lot of backstory to set up and the paper seems to be working as a way to get it out there without just "telling" it to the reader (although I'm not sure this story will see the light of day outside of my harddrive).

Orange Skittles taste just like orange flavored tic tacs.

At work they've started playing Christmas carols already. Not even the malls have started that yet to the best of my knowledge. November 2nd is far too early for Christmas carols I think. Everyone will be tired of them by the time Christmas rolls around - especially the staff who have to listen to it all through their shifts.

On the NaNoWriMo front, I'm still badly behind, having yet to break 2000 words. I'm at 1978 words and counting at the moment. Not sure how much more I'm going to get written tonight.

I'm really struggling with my story idea this year. I'm only nine hundred words in, and plodding slowly. I'm sure I remember last year being right on target, if not a little ahead of the game on the second day. Not sure if this is a bad omen for actually meeting the goal of 50,000 words for the story. It's just not flowing yet.

623 words into the story. Behind on the first day. Not a good sign for this story, but I'm too tired to push on tonight. Hopefully things will progress a bit better in the morning (and maybe there'll be an answer to a couple of the questions I ended up posting to the forums).

Figured out an intro to my story and started writing it this morning. 183 words in.

Signed up for NaNoWriMo again this year. Unlike last year though, I have no clue what I'm going to be writing.

My copy of season two of Forever Knight arrived this morning. Now if only I could shake this cold and get some energy back.
