This posts title I added yesterday, when I did this as a draft post to keep the Nanowrimo stat's I had accumulated safe, and decided to keep it to tease lol. Here are yesterday's stats that I didn't post earlier:
Your Average Per Day - 1,623
Words Written Today - 3,951
Target Word Count - 50,000
Total Words Written - 47,083
Words Remaining - 2,917
I've had a banging headache for two days and taken everything from ibuprofen and co-codamol to my migraine medication and the bugger is still there (grrr!) so I honestly didn't know if I'd hit the 2,917 to finish today. But I'm beginning to see my perpetual headaches and migraines as an irritating boyfriend, one who tries to prevent me from doing exactly what I want - so that there's no doubt that I'm going to overcome the wretched things with a 'no way, hosay!' attitude.
So I won! Yay! Although the novel isn't finished I made it over the line this month with 50,110 words. BTW those of you who read the excerpt I previously posted of my novel, that was a dream my main character was having. I put one in after I watched one of the Nanowrimo videos, where a girl puts them in whenever she gets stuck, and I thoroughly recommend them. They're a great way to say things that you may be cannot say in the main text, as a tool to change up the style of your novel (I made my horror-movie style to contrast the airy-fairyness of my main character) or to use as a metaphor for something that you may be writing in between the lines, like a clue for the reader.
In academy-award winner style I want to thank everyone who left me supportive messages through this month, it really means a lot. And to Lady Gaga, who has been on repeat, approximately 100 of these:

I'm off to watch a week's worth of telly and stroke the dog until I possibly fall asleep, so that I have to watch them all again tomorrow - but who cares, I now have some time to do it :) Love to all xxxx
