My stat's from today at Camp NaNoWriMo.

Wow--there are 12 days left for camp and I only have 3,229 words left to make my goal. Based on where I am in the process, I see the body of this work being a pinch longer than 17,500 since the characters have more to do and say. However, the home stretchiness of this point feels good! I remember looking at the stats back on day 5 when I only had 3,346 words written, and here I am--12 days from the full finish and five days from when the math gurus at the campsite say I can actually break the tape at the finish line with fewer words to go than all I'd written by day 5...wow.

Happy writing, and happy weekend! Let's plan to see one another at the virtual camp fire tomorrow, as usual...
