NaNoWriMo Update

I got about 4500 words written last weekend, which went a long ways towards catching up with my target. I'm still behind from when I was sick early in the month. But with this weekend's progress, I currently need to average around 1800 words per day in order to make 50K by the end of the month.

So it's definitely still manageable. And the story is, thus far, proceeding along nicely. I'm not quite as far along as I figured I would be (for the number of words written). I guess that I have plenty of plot. At this rate, the book will chalk in around the 80K-90K range which, for humorous fiction, is a comfortable length.

(If you're curious, I've put up a small excerpt from the draft. I chose the bit where I basically intro/explain/justify part of the novel's premise. You can find it here or, in fancy Flash form, here.)

Edit: Using the word meter tool that altivo, who's a good 6K ahead of me (cheers!) , used in his LJ.
