31,286. When I started I only expected to greet 30,000 by the end of this month, so to have met that number already, I already consider the venture a success. That said, today my words created a scene I am not at all sure I will keep in the story. I was not comfortable when I wrote them, and I didn't do the scene well, but I knew I needed to write it, to get it out there, so I can look it over later and decide. I had intentionally skipped over it yesterday. It's an "intimate" scene, and I'm just not sure I want that sort of thing in my stories. I mean an allusion to, okey dokey, a kiss, an embrace, a fade to darkness, but this was a little too um...you know. My other two stories are more young on the young adult scale, and so have none of that, this one is more teenage girl-ish. I'm just not sure. But whatever, this is NaNoWriMo, so I wont be spending any time tomorrow reading over it and fretting, instead, I'll move on, in a mad dash to the next scene, on and on, till I reach the end. Then and only then, will I go back, and in any real way, wonder about what the heck I've written.
