So in years past we have done this little table thingy to track where everyone is. I feel like I'm explaining it wrong.

Anyways, it looks like this:

Book Title:
Word Count:
Characters Killed:
Cups of Coffee Drunk:
Hours Spent Procrastinating:
Word Goal for Today:
Words Actually Written today:

That should be good, right? All I honestly care about is the word count anyways.

Oh, and just so everyone knows, I definitely stole this description from Juliet. xD

Thanks, Juliet, for the heart attack.

Yeah, we've still got tons of time. I just really wanted a NaNo 2012 topic because the 2011 topic was bothering me.

I MEANT LAV BY THE WAY. I just realized I said Juliet. But I read her name at the bottom and my brain flailed over it. And yes. I can understand that.
