Wish that I could write that fast............... Wish I had an idea (any idea) to inspire me to write that fast....

Haley: It was on the couch. The damned cat was sleeping on it. Stupid feline.

CK: The nice thing about the deadline is that you are forced to just write like mad and not worry overmuch about details. Fine tuning can come later.

SNMartha: I went public because I though the potential humiliation factor would be a big motivator for me. Turns out I'm getting such a kick out of the steadily rising word count and the cheers from the crowd (thanks!!), that I'm not much worried about failing to finish.

Yet.

I SO have to do this next year. I claim to be writing all year but without having to announce my word count, I can claim pretty much anything.

Have I mentioned that I'd very much like to be you when I grow up?

is the wordcount each day? Or is it total words?

If it's each day - you're writing War and Peace :-)

Lory: Oh, yes, do it next year! If I finish this thing this year, I'll almost certainy do it next.

You want to be ME?? I'm touched. Wow. You seem pretty grown-up to me already, though; I think you underrate yourself!

CQ: Lordy,no, that's total words!! I'm keeping pretty much to my 2,000 words per day goat that I'd set for myself.

WV: evshehu - sounds like a Hebrew blessing.

I'd wondered about your calculation for total words before but didn't want to criticize your multiplication publicly - now I understand. LOL
