So, yeah, a long silence means that I basically gave up on winning Nano this year. A few days of bad sleep, weather changes, and the accompanying migraines and lack of energy did me in. So I've reorganized: I'm going back to what works for me, which is to write for a set length of time every day instead of trying for a set word-count.
I am planning to continue on with the same story, bad though it may be, and I am going to continue plugging my totals into the Nano website, because why not? I won't be finishing on time, but I plan to plug on until either I finish this story, or it finishes me.
376 words today, by the way.
