Suffice to say that one such project got removed from my plate and left enough room that I figured, what the heck, let's give it another go.
My current tally is over eight thousand words. And, to make it even more ridiculous, it is a sequel to the very first NaNoWriMo I successfully completed. So next year, I'll pretty much be stuck writing something new.
I am enjoying it immensely. It is light, fluffy, self-indulgent, utterly unpublishable and exactly what I needed to be doing.
So the next month or so will be taken up with that. I'll poke here periodically and let y'all know how it's coming along.
