NaNoWriMo Day Twenty-Seven

This morning I woke up from a dream where someone who looked like Mehitobel Wilson/Poppy Z. Brite was telling me that I wasn't using my mind control powers correctly in trying to determine the supernatural strangeness that was going on around me. Don't ask me how, but I had mind control powers over the male gender. Don't ask me why, but it was up to me to figure out what was going on so this corner of the world could be saved.

I actually slept in and wrote from 9:30am to 11:30am. During that time my main character won money in a poker game organized by his best friend and her husband, went to work and volunteered to work some of Thanksgiving and the Day After Thanksgiving, confirmed a date later in the week, went shopping for a new shirt and met someone who is about to become important to him.

Words Written Today: 2068

I am still on track to finish before the end of the month. I do have some more scenes to write which I can work on tomorrow and my novel should be over 50,000 words when I'm done with it. Now I know how some of the other people in my region felt when they said their novel was going to be longer than 50,000 and they wanted to make sure they got it done before the end of the month. Those people, though, had reached their 50,000 word count a week or more ago. I don't know how that feels.

Yesterday I earned my 45,000 reward which is a book or CD. I still have some other rewards to get through first.

I organized a write-in from 6pm - 9pm at a Caribou Coffee that is rumored to be quiet and nearly empty of patrons. I've stepped into one many years ago to see if they had a pastry of some kind and haven't been back since. Hopefully the Muse will wave her magic wand the words won't be painful when they come out. (Yeah... right!)
