Daily Count Challenge goes to galadriel34

Okay, so I wrote like the wind today! No, not exactly sure how, but I ended up with 4,434 words today. Wrote a couple thousand yesterday evening/night. Just over 7,000 it seems. I'm only doing that because the NaNoWriMo official site now gives us our lifetime total words. I'm an extra 25,000 away from 500,000 words so that's my goal this month. So, I must write all the words as much as I can! :D Daggone lifetime words. ;)

Now, I hand off this beautiful, sparkly, daily count challenge baton to galadriel34 and I know you've got this! :D Go go go! You can do it! :D
