Either that coffee is actually decaf or...

...or I was just up REALLY late last night! It's only 10:11 and I'm tired.

I spent two more hours writing today and got my total NaNo WordCount up to 4224 words.

To get my family into the game I made up a "NaNo Thermometer" Poster. It's marked off in 1000 word increments, and every time I write, I use a blue highlighter to fill it up to the corresponding level. Now my family doesn't even have to use words to get engaged in this - they can just glance at my door and see how I'm doing!

Plus it's just fun to fill in the "temperature."
