I've tried to stay out of this ...

Oh, look! Yesterday was my 2200th post. Big number. How is it that I feel like I say so little with a number like that?

Speaking of big numbers ... Holy smokes! I exceeded my NaNo goal by a country mile today. I was hoping to edge up on 28,000 or so. Realistically, I would have been happy to hit my 1700 and go merrily on my way. Honestly, as much as I love the days where I go hog wild, I just want to prove to myself that I can set a goal and keep it. For an extended period of time. Even though I'm ahead on my writing, I want to continue hitting 1700 per day. It sounds simple enough. Right? Well, for the most part it is. Except that I notice that once I hit my 1700 I start to slack off. And that's something I don't want.

However, today I can say that I took my daily word goal and threw down the gauntlet.

What? That means I wrote almost 4400 words since yesterday. *blink, blink, blink*
There was a very naughty sex scene that practically wrote itself and an aftermath scene that wrote itself and a "girlfriends commiserating" scene that has almost completely written itself. Actually, it's not so much girlfriends commiserating as one human girl trying to understand her place in the Pack and my heroine coming to the realization that everyone has problems, not just her.

I was really trying to push to break that 30K barrier and I did it! *celebrates with peanut butter* *seriously, peanut butter. Reese's Pieces to be exact* *Oh! and a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup. Yum!*

NaNo Update: Word wars and scaling those unimaginable heights - A rambling look at how I managed to reach the high point of today.

On top of oodles of writing, I also got some book stuff done. As I always do.
Book #232 - Dreadful Skin by Cherie Priest - Not your typical werewolf book.

30 days of books... Day 59 - Celtic gods and the women who love them.
Waiting on Wednesday - Ruthless Game - Just because an author writes overwrought books doesn't mean I don't look forward to them. Especially when they're steamy.

My peanut butter stash is inexplicably getting smaller. This s clearly a sign that I should go.
