NaNoWriMo 2011 - Day 17 Report

I saw a shooting star while walking the dog this morning.  That's about the only thought I can formulate at the moment other than my back hurts because my computer chair sucks.  I'm really tired.

Day #: 17
Words Written Today: 2064
Total Words Written: 60,608
Drive: almost there
Beard Status:  maybe it'll stick around a little longer
Estimated wordage remaining: 10k.  Still two main bad guys to kill, a meth lab to push on the train tracks, and the big ending.


  1. I think with beards, as long as they don't get too out of control, they can be pretty sexy ;) But I know there are as many opinions as people out there in the world! hehe

    I think you need a rest! I was just saying to a colleague today that I need a holiday. Funny, I just booked one for next year. But I meant I need the kind of holiday where I sleep most of the day and the rest of the time I just stare at the wall.

  2. Hey Dan, I have that same chair, plus my laptop is shot.I have a wireless keyboard plugged into to it. It's a lovely contraption.

    Personally,I like the beard,but I'm into that rugged mountain man look. Best opinion should be that of your wife or girlfriend.

  3. I'm putting together a new and vastly superior computer chair as we speak. My laptop is at least five years old and may be going on life support soon.

    My last two girlfriends were firmly anti-beard. I'm currently flying solo and thus able to grow beards and attempt to write novels in short amounts of time to my heart's content.

  4. You are really chugging along there with the word count!
