Iíve been told week three is easier than week two. They lied. Week three is still hard. The difference is, the little voices (who whined about quitting) have shut up. There is no quitting. So I write until I feel like my brain is dripping from my ears. In a way, it reminds me of running. I donít know if Iíll ever hit that ďwriterís high,Ē but eventually, Iíll get used to it.

Iím going to take it down a notch in December, 1500 words a day, and finish the novel early January. This is my first and last NaNo. From now on, Iíll do the 90 in 90 method (90,000 words in 90 days), and write two to three books per year, with most of the summer off recharging my creative batteries.

We last left our heroine on day eleven. Since then the tally sheet reads:

Day Twelve 20,607 (+57)
Day Thirteen 22,743 (+2136)
Day Fourteen 24,850 (+2107)
Day Fifteen 26,984 (+1234)
Day Sixteen 26,984 (+0)
Day Seventeen 29,064 (+2080)
Day Eighteen 30,725 (+1661)
