As for other motivation, apparently David has a mystery thing for me that I won't get unless I reach 12,500 words by around 11:22pm tomorrow. Erm, tonight, I suppose. I'm at 1520 words right now, so that's roughly 11,000 words to go. Doable, right? Even with a busy day tomorrow? It'll involve a lot of Internet ignoring and squeezing work into every spare minute, but it can be done.
Let the noveling and ghost romancing begin!
