no sleep

Pulled an all-nighter. Was going to go to bed at midnight (did, in fact) but then realized that I was going to be awake for a while anyways, weighed a few more considerations and went for it with a mug of coffee and Eddie.

I was forced to write in the spare bedroom above the kitchen, and in utmost secrecy, lest I fall afoul of a parent, who would doubtless insist on bed.

Got pretty chilly around 5:30. Very foggy, frosty. Not one wink of sleep did I get, but my word count is up to 24,046.

Actually am not suffering much: was able to stay awake in church. However things are striking me as way too funny and I look ghastly.

Please say hi, somebody!!

Oh dear! I look like I'm about ninety when I'm tired, I get all pale with these huge circles under my eyes.

By the comment above, if you write constantly the rest of today and perhaps the rest of tomorrow (including nights) I'm positive that you could reach 50,000, no sweat (okay, perhaps a bit of it ^^).

I do not think I have ever heard anyone who did NaNo say they did not panic and do it at the last minute. In this at least, you are quite normal:)

I would also like to point out that Microsoft is winning by 10% on your geeky little poll:) *frog-face*
