Words barfed: 2,081 (125% of Daily Goal)
Total words: 7,123 (86% on Monthly Pace)
You know whats funny?
I spent over a month earlier this year (in fact, right before my first blog post) writing the first chapter of a book. In my mind, it’s pretty good but still has a lot of work to make it viable. About 6,000 words.
In 5 days of NaNoWrimo hell (4 days of actual writing, if you can call it that), I’ve managed 7,123 words. Granted, I am so embarrassed over the quality that I had to yell at my wife to get her to stop reading over my shoulder. She thought I was being mean, but really I was just trying to save our marriage. No way she’d still respect me. Even I am not reading what I have written until December 1st.
Or maybe I will start my editing on December 21st, since that is apparently when the world is going to end. That way, if sifting through my NaNoWriMo barf turns me into mush, I won’t be mushy for long.
Cheers to getting back on track.
May you all be possessed by demons. And I mean that in the best way possible.

Possibly what you meant was “may you all be possessed by daimons”?
As always, your suggestion makes more sense (thanks Wikipedia).
I have also forbidden myself from reading until some unspecified time after November 30. Perhaps I’ll hold out for an apocalypse so I don’t have to acknowledge the worthlessness of my endeavor. Catch up with me (I made it to 10,111 words yesterday!) and you may have an entire jelly doughnut! 😉
That is unfair. It’s like telling me to grow 6 more inches; it just ain’t in my genes to overachieve like that.
Congratulations on your word count! It appears there’s something to be said about writing while you’re awake (and not using your phone to do it).
