I bought myself a single beer and set it on the desk next to me. I will be allowed to open and drink it only once I have met my word count for the day. Two green bars on the stats page. I want that beer. I try to get my subconscious mind to link the act of writing with the reward of drinking the beer. It doesn't quite work. I know too much.

I update my word count after every paragraph. I am not in the mood to write tonight. But I want those green bars, and I want my beer.

At last. 5,303 words. I am over 10% of the way done with this book (assuming I stop at 50,000). Come here, Budvar, my friend. I am going to drink you.

I've had a similar night, except my reward was a single cancer stick.

Put it out of sight. It'll only distract you until you're complete. I was updating my wordcount every 50 words by the end. :P Finally made it, though. Bring on day 4.

End of November 3rd: I've hit 10k. I should really study for Physics tonight, but maybe I'll see if I can't slip another thousand or two in there.

@Footjob, you can microwave most grains I've tried pretty easily through the microwave, even if they aren't packaged for it.

Unfortunately, an Essay has been taking my time this weekend. A piddling 400 something words are mine. I shall have to catch up majorly.

I am behind. This is bad. To TVtropes I go to get ideas.

1823 words pounded out today, putting me up to 6195 total. Makes me happy to be just about 1200 words over the day 3 goal. Hopefully I can keep this grind up day by day. I feel like the quality of my writing is dropping from time to time, but at least the words are getting out. The revision process might just kill me though, if I ever decide to revisit this after November.

Yo yo. I've been arguably busy, with non-essay stuff. Nanowrimo is more important than most of my homework.

And the worst thing is that it was almost true... Yeah, I barely have a hundred words, but at least I'm starting to get a decent idea.

I'm still fighting the editing demon who wants to constantly go back and fix things to make them nicer. I wasted ten minutes obsessively tweaking the title of a chapter that, for all I know, I will end up cutting entirely when I get around to properly editing this thing.

Just get it done, you can get it right later.

I'm getting a bit nervous now, though, because I'm getting into territory I haven't finished researching yet. The person I was hoping to use for research hasn't answered my request to meet up this week, and I've got a big empty blank space in my head where that part of the story should be.

7914 words total as I wrap up today. Being ahead of the word count tempts me to go a day where I only keep my average word count above par, and write little, but I squash those thoughts pretty quick. Laziness can take hold permanently too easily to let myself slack so early on. Maybe I can finally train my brain to stop fighting my fledgling work ethic.

Did the same thing myself yesterday, when I decided to use the TVTropes story generator to get ideas.  While this wasted an afternoon (I didn't have much free time this weekend anyway), I did at least come out of it with an idea.

Long story short (since I haven't written it yet), a lot of the content won't be too surprising to anyone who's familiar with my old days of megaposting.
