Name:The Lap Otter
I've done NaNoWriMo I think twice before? I think. The first time I did an attempted rewrite of a story I tried to write with a friend when we were... pretty young. That was maybe 2006. I failed that one pretty miserably, I think I ended with 6,000 words or so. The second time was 2009. I finished with about 22,000 words and a newfound sense of my own ability. This year I'm hoping for 30-40k, but obviously winning is always an option!

This is my dedicated NaNoWriMo journal. Posts outside of November might be planning post or retrospectives; posts within November will usually fall within a format:

New words: the new words included in this post.
Words today: the number of words I've written so far today (days are counted from midnight to midnight even though that's not necessarily when I sleep).
Total words: my running total wordcount.
Today's target: the number of words total that I should have written by the end of today to make it to 50,000 by November 30.
Today's goal: as calculated before I start writing each day, the number of words per day I need to make it to 50,000 by November 30.

Commentary on the following segment or the day's mishaps, possibly containing excuses!

Maybe some more commentary?
