Short update (bear in mind it's once again past midnight):
To stay on track I should have reached my word target of 16,666 on day 10. I've overshot a bit (for once) and am currently at 16,878. Yay!
Tomorrow (and on the weekend) I'll most likely have more time to write than during the last three days, so I should easily keep on track and (hopefully) build up a bit of surplus for next week.
Just for the record, by the way, I'm only about 4 chapters in. I'll predict here and now that the story will end up longer than 50,000 words - not in November, obviously, but someday. :)
I'm really looking forward to writing tomorrow. I have no idea what is going to happen and I'm really looking forward to what my characters will come up with ;)
