I'm powering ahead now - on Monday I switched to a new character, and after two days of solid writing I know his name, his situation, his deepest desires and his secrets. I've also given him a love interest and a couple of major problems, neither of which I knew about yesterday.
THAT's why I love NanoWrimo. Forget the roadmap and go charging off through the scrub. You never know where you'll end up, or even how you got there.
(Sometimes the widgets lag the real count, so for the record I'm currently on 23482 at 2:40pm on Wednesday the 12th of November.)
