My word count for NaNoWriMo 2015 is, as many Dragon Ball Z fans might say, OVER NINE THOUSAAAAAAAAAAAAAAND!!!!!!!!!!!

I haven't really watched Dragon Ball Z much, but I can appreciate a good meme all the same.

Of course, I am ridiculously behind on NaNoWriMo. I'm supposed to be at 28,333 words right now, and I haven't even broken 10,000 yet. I don't think I'm quite done writing for tonight, though, so perhaps that will change! At the moment, the NaNoWriMo website is telling me that I can still finish on time if I write 2,902 words per day for the next two weeks, as opposed to the 1,667 words that I would write per day if I were actually on target.

Will I make it to 50,000 words this year? You know, I'm not sure. I have family coming later this week, and you're not supposed to go and hide in your room when you have family visiting you from all the way across the country. I'm going to really try, though. I've been bringing a notebook with me to work so I can write during slow moments (although I maintain good customer service practices!), and that's actually helped me get a lot of work done.

Writing by hand and adding the words to my Word document later has been a really good technique for me. Sometimes I have a hard time getting started when I'm typing, but it's almost always easier to write with a pen.

If nothing else, I'm going to beat my all-time NaNoWriMo record! Surely I can beat 12,360 words. Surely.
