I think I totally missed Friday? I'm not entirely sure now. It was kinda a blur for me...
However, I managed nearly a 7k day today, and I'm just shy of 60k (400 words needed, but I reached the end of the chapter and didn't feel like starting the next one).
I'll hopefully get a few words in tomorrow before work starts up again...and after that I'll be luck to get any in before NaNo ends at the end of the week.
60k is a good number though, and just beyond the 1/2 point in the story.
Skating in to December now...weakmoments, take it away!
