Didn't really get much writing done over the holidays, what with all the enjoyable time spent seeing family, cooking, and eating. *sigh*

So now, with my word count at 35K and the end of the month only five days away, the question stands: Should I rush to finish on the 50K goal? Should I slack off? Should I post an inane poll to see what you think?

Here's which option I chose:

Poll #1095209 Nano Endgame

Should I press on and try to make 50K?

Absolutely! You're most of the way there. Who needs sleep?
2(6.1%)
Just keep writing and get as far as you get. 50K is arbitrary.
16(48.5%)
Don't bother. Go back to editing your other manuscript or working on fursuits.
0(0.0%)
I don't particularly care. You're the one who signed up. Now stop nattering on about it.
3(9.1%)
Weasels. Fifty thousand weasels.

I said "keep writing," but my heart was with "fifty thousand weasels".

I had to go with "weasels" only because the poll is out of "krullers."

Wasn't this the first big family holiday to show off your more important production? :)

I've never made it to 50K because november is so busy for me. The years that I have done Nano, I've set my own goal at 20k - the experience is the same regardless of the word count.

I had to go with the weasels, but the part of my mind that's actually thinking and not nattering about weasels votes for 'just keep writing'. You've won several times before, so it's not going to be something desperately new and exciting, and there is that baby boy who needs time to love on his daddy and all... :)

NaNo Junkie Vote!

Rhaaar. Finish novel. :) Because if you put it down, you won't finish it, but if you hit 50K, you'll have a better idea of what will go next on December 1.

Hey there.

Would you be interested in hosting our comedy show again this year? ;)

Mmm, quite possibly. I don't know what the scheduling's like but if I'm free, I'd be happy to. :)
