Here's the start of the big wordcountdown. After writing last night, here's the total:
74,200 / 85,000
Word Nerd's goal for last night was 1,500 new words. This represents about 2,100 new words.
Also, Word Nerd needs to start extending thanks to the makers of M&M candies for putting dark chocolate M&Ms back on the shelf after Word Nerd was resigning herself to believe they were solely a promotional thing for the release of Star Wars III. Undoubtedly, a large chunk of the end of this novel will be fueled by popping these candy-coated dark chocolates which melt in your mouth, not in your hand, a good thing while typing.
If Word Nerd can, she'll update the word count total throughout the weekend.
But she may be busy writing.
