NaNoWriMo Day 6

It's shortly after midnight on Day 6 of NaNoWriMo. Let's catch up with my progress.

At the end of day 5, I was up to 10,377 total words,well over my declared Day 5 target of 10,000. The ideal target listed below is based on doing the minimum of 1667 words per day:

Day 1 (ideal target: 1667): 2008 (2008 words written today)
Day 2 (ideal target: 3334): 4393 (2385 words written today)
Day 3 (ideal target: 5001): 6211 (1818 words written today)
Day 4 (ideal target: 6668): 8102 (1891 words written today)
Day 5 (ideal target: 8335): 10,377 (2275 words written today)
Day 6 (ideal target:10,002): to be continued!
Day 7 (ideal target:11,669): to be continued!
Day 8 (ideal target:13,336): to be continued!
Day 9 (ideal target:15,003): to be continued!
Day 10 (ideal target:16,670): to be continued!

I think I'm permitted a happy dance at this point, so I'll post some music that's been a bit of an inspiration of late. Sometimes, when I write, I just have to get into the right frame of mind by having the right music to write along with. I like to occasionally share a YouTube feed of the song (subject to it being available from YouTube, with the caveat of I am not responsible for the link, or for the link not working, etc.).

This is a great song by the Korean group 2NE1, entitled "I am the best (내가 제일 잘 나가)", and the catchy beat and inspirational lyrics have really been driving along my writing.

And where next? Let's take this to 12,500 by the end of Day 6 if we can. I have a meeting to attend tomorrow night, however, so I can't guarantee I'll have enough time, but we'll see how it goes.
