So, I just compulsively (!) checked my 2005 results with where I am this year. Of course, I just started today (hehe). By this day in 2005 (not the DATE, but the DAY, Saturday before Thanksgiving), I had close to 25,000 words.
I have a tad over 4,000 today.
Well, I finished a little early in 2005, because of the way the dates fell. But I did stay at it.
I'm going to have to write my ass off if I actually plan on finishing. We're going to the beach on Monday, and who knows how much we'll get done.
I really need to start getting 8,000 words a day done. That's a lot.
