NaNoWriMo Day: 5
Words Written: 8,328
Words Remaining:

Remember, remember the 5th of November. I forget why. But for me it will be memorable as the day I hauled my clunking behemoth of a novel kicking and screaming back onto the right track. According to the figures projected by my (frankly overcomplicated) spreadsheet, I'm now on course to finish on November 30th. Though I haven't yet factored in the effect of tomorrow's horse racing coverage on my output. I could be back to December 6th by the time they cross that finish line at Doncaster.

Of equal excitement today was the arrival of Christmas present number 14, which I'd ordered online on Wednesday afternoon. It means I now have only one remaining yuletide gift to buy. I couldn't possibly reveal the name of the sole person I haven't bothered to shop for yet, but it begins with L and has fewer than 5 letters. With my current busy schedule, the individual in question will be lucky to get a satsuma.
