I'm on track to finish my "novel" in terms of word count reaching 50,000. But for the rest of today and tomorrow, I am chucking NaNo in favor of finishing my Seven/Ace clichefic. In fact, from now until Wednesday morning, I think all NaNo participants should set aside their novels and write Seven/Ace instead. The world would then be a much better place. So that is my proposal.

35628 / 50000 words. 71% done!

I hate my plot and my characters. I like my spelling, punctuation, and grammar.

I don't think this is an ideal situation.

5845 / 50000 words. 12% done!

It sucks that the NaNo site has been down for so much of today, the first day of the challenge. I was able to briefly access it only a couple of times, to little use. I can't check the FAQ, go on the forums, or update my word count, which is discouraging. I did get in a decent amount of writing today, though. My goal is 2000 words a day and I just reached it:

2052 / 50000 words. 4% done!

I am going with the vampires and horse racing idea, which is vaguely kinda sorta plotted out. Please don't ask me for details. The working title is "Blood Bay" (a horse color and a vampire reference) and I wrote a prologue as well as a scene that introduces two of the vampires. Good enough for one day.

Like some of you, I'm doing NaNoWriMo this year. My account is here. (ETA: I forgot to say before, writing buddies are welcome!)

First I thought I'd write a vampire novel. The Twilight series vastly amuses me and I was going to do a shorter vampire story earlier this year. Never got around to it.

OTOH, while watching the Breeders' Cup yesterday, I got to thinking. Horse racing is my favorite sport and I'd enjoy writing about it.

So now I'm torn. I'd enjoy either subject, and combining them doesn't make much sense (horse-racing vampires?!?). Maybe I should flip a coin.
