My strategy is waking up super early and bullying my brain into popping out as many words as possible before I have to go to school I don't know what that does to the quality of my writing, and my muse doesn't wake up that early >.>
My writing has been flowing pretty nicely so far, but because I only just started on the 3rd day im a bit behind. I did a lot of catching up tonight and I've worked out that to reach tomorrow's goal i'll have to write something like at least 3,589 words which doesn't seem too bad.
My word count is teeny tiny compared to some of these, its actually embarrassing me. Its 6,411 which I think is okay for missing two days and being at school for most of the others
I am doing okay, just school is distracting me from what I'm doing, my muse is okay, just yelling at me to hurry up and continue her story. I am almost at 12K but I would love to be at 15K by tonight *crosses fingers* I thought I was head of the game untill I read others weord counts >.<
Still the 4th for me, and I am at a modest 9.5k! A little ahead of schedule, but not zooming through ;} As much as I'd like to stand up and say "WHO NEEDS SLEEP!?" I can't (tonight) because I have to get up early tomorrow...darn you school! 3 weeks left of NaNo and 4 weeks left of school! And I shall prevail!
there's no such thing as too creepy (says the horror fan), just let the story take you where it wants to go. you just have to get everything out right now. Try listening to Howard Shore or the soundtrack to dexter if you're one of those people who is effected by what you're listening to. It isnt distracting but it is uplifting and may help ease the creepiness.

lol I enjoy the creepyness, but when I get too creeped out I start losing sleep (as its 3 am where i am) I am just taking this story to new creepy depths for my own case... And it wants to go as dark and disturbing as possible... I am just kinda glad there will be some (dark) comic relief soon... but still, its keeping with the darkness despite that.. *i need sleep*
