Gee, I wonder what year I graduated. And no, that's not a typo for 2006. I finished the story that year, and it's one of my better ones. That doesn't explain why it's still unedited.
If you mentally added up those word counts like I did when I started thinking about it, you might notice that I'm near 800k cumulative words for the first nine NaNos. A million isn't too far away now that I know how much I can really write in a month. In fact, it's 193820 words away. That's my goal for November 2011. Whether I have a job or not, I'm writing at least that many words and will likely aim for 200k. Of course, if I don't have a job, I'm writing 500k. Next year will be my tenth NaNo. It needs to be the best one yet.
