Daily count challenge to craterdweller

Had a pretty productive session of word sprints today and wound up with 1672 words toward my NaNo novel. That keeps me 2 days ahead of par at this point. The end of the story seems to continue to move farther away as I keep writing, so hopefully I'll be able to finish as well as pass 50K by the end of the month.

Handing this off to my fellow NaNo warrior craterdweller. Wishing you plenty of words, abundant creativity, and a Muse that's good to you. Happy writing!
