31,222 and a huge block of dialogue  
I can't really get around it at the moment, but I think it's exciting dialogue, so it's ok? :P
But I'm still on track. I finally signed up for the NaNo site. I wasn't really planning to, but you do funny things when you procrastinate. I'm about 1,222 ahead of where I needed to be for today, which is good. If I get far enough ahead, I can drop my 2k/day down a little bit and hopefully not stress out as much. I'm really hoping the ammount of story I have and the 50k deadline coincide. If the story isn't finished at 50k, I have no problem continuing. I'm just worried that my content will last that long. I have a few more locations planned and a few more scenes that I hope will take up the last part of the book. If I keep going at this rate, (provided I have enough content) I'll hit the 50k on Nov 30th no problem though.

The other question is.. if I hit 50k on Nov. 30th and the story ISN'T done, does that mean I lose? XD I see some people on the NaNo site that have such massive ammount writen already that they've "won" the challenge four times over already and they are still going. That's great. I can't produce that much. I'll get in a good little groove writing and writing until I've typed out 800 words and scarcely noticed it, but most of the time I'm agonizing over every 100 that land on the screen. It's not even that I don't know what happens next or how to write it. I keep trying to come up with the best way to get from point A to point B with the best words. I know this is all about quantity, not quality, so I'm doing my best to push through and just get the ideas down.

I'm not sure how much revision I'll get done before I let people read, though. I think I want to get a spellcheck on it and send the rough draft out to like 2-3 people so I know what kinds of things I should focus on for the first revision.

I don't think I'll persue publication or anything like that, but I am pretty excited to let my freinds read a story I wanted to tell, even if it's total crap :X

It occurs to me that I haven't really talked about the plot or anything, so I'll just copy the really short synopsis I slapped onto my NaNo page. The synopsis really does read like an awesomely schlocky YA novel, but that's probably what this is XD Sorry! There is no naked smokey Ron/Hermione making out in this book! (Yeah, I saw the new Harry Potter today. hurr hurr)

Fingerbones

Aseneth has just received a package containing the severed finger of her brother, Osred. In a world where the dead can appear to the living through the magical forces of aether, a young woman is guilty of breaking one of society's greatest taboos: witholding the bones of the dead. With a cadre of mysterious black-hooded men and a squad from the Order of Sacred burials persuing them, can the pair solve the mystery of Osred's death before it is too late?

Ooh, congrats on the wordcount! :D What's your NaNo name?

I almost wish I hadn't hit my word count, because I haven't been able to get nearly as much done since I did. Or maybe that's just because I have to stop writing porn and get on with the plot... ^^:;;

I am Pomato on the NaNo site. :D (Seriously, I've been waiting for that name to free up on LJ for years so I can namechange, but someone registered it years ago and then never updated it.. ever -..- Name hoarders!)
