How are you doing?

How is everyone doing now that we are halfway into the month? I am at 20,111 and am planning *crosses fingers* to be at 25,000 by the end of today or Sunday.

After a thoroughly enjoyable three (winning) years of NaNo, I won't be participating this year.

(Pause for the shocked gasps to die down)

But it's for an incredibly cool reason, and it's writing-related! Suffice it to say that I'm working on a PAID writing project, with a deadline of the first of the year for completion of the manuscript. I'm trying to keep it kind of under wraps for the time being, but this much I can tell you: I have an agent, so I'm on my way for "real"(tm).

The thing I'm working on is 10 chapters long, and I've got 8 of them done. Now I'm just struggling with writer's block to finish the last freakin' 20%. Why is the ending so hard for me? (I got 50K words of my 2007 novel done by 11/30/07, but didn't get around to finishing the story until like March!)

Needless to say, I'll be pulling for all of you. Who knows? Maybe the adrenaline in the air will help me get this mofo done.

So Close...

8 days, guys! :) I had to dump my entire plot and start all over again with a new outline, and I still need to do that outline, but hey. That's alright. I have time.
