Well, I've made my goal and beyond today, although it's not near as impressive as yesterday.

I've added 2355 words, bringing my total word-count to 10592! I'm 20% there! The trick now is not to get overconfident with my buffer. I still want to try to reach 2000 words a day, although at this point I only need 1400 a day to finish on time.

Still working on the same fic, and I'm at the point where I'm working on transition scenes I hadn't thought about yet which is both good and bad. It's good because it's new material, which is more engaging than stuff I've thought about a million times. It's bad because if I hit a stumbling block, it's going to take longer to work through it. So far so good, though!

What I'm truly enjoying at this point, is that I'm reaching places to insert exposition naturally that I kinda crammed in at the beginning. I'm re-inserting the exposition so I can prune the beginning when NaNo's done and it's editing time. Show, not tell, right? Either way, I'm not going to worry about now.

NaNo stats predict me finishing by the 9th, which while better than yesterday, is still hilarious. :D

Also, my music rotated to Robo's theme from Chrono Trigger while I was writing, and I just instinctively started grooving where I sat. This makes me happy. :)
