  1. You’re going to hate this, but my stats are virtually right on track. I know, it’s awful when you get behind the 8 ball. I lost one day last week because of a conference at our church, but I’ve made part of that up, so I’m almost where I want to be. I wish I was where I was last year, finishing on the eve of Thanksgiving. This is not going to be the easiest week, even if I’m not behind.

    Oh, and when my computer application went south before I’d forgotten to save the 900 words I put in on Sunday night, I was ready to spit nails.

    (Yeah, and do I need to know that at this rate I’ll finish some time in December? I really hate that one.)

    • I don’t hate it, Beth. I am proud to know writers who are cruising through the month. Of course, I’m throwing virtual spitballs at you. *wink*

    • @Beth P.S. I tried to comment on your book review of the Muppets Make Puppets (via Examiner site), but my internet locked up. This is what I wanted to say: “Thank you for this review! My 6-yr-old would love to make furry friends, he’s always creating little creatures. This book is going under the tree next month : )”

  2. I have to say, bravo on the post because you’ve really captured the emotions of this contest when it comes to those hellish stats. And it doesn’t matter if you’re behind or ahead, because I’m over the required 50k, and I look at some of the counts and still beat myself up as in, “why isn’t my daily word count higher.” Sheesh!
