Math Was Never My Strongsuit

So, if I'm supposed to write 50,000 for NaNoWriMo in 30 days, that computes (on my old school Texas Instruments calculator) to about 1,666.6666 words a day.

That means, that at the stroke of midnight tonight, I should have approximately 6,666 words written.

Actual number of words written: 472.

Don't need to be a math guru to know that those numbers don't match. Like, they're not even close.

Sigh.

The problem with that is that you can always just say "oh I'll write 2000 tomorrow"...

Ew. Maybe you shouldn't have done the calculation. 1,666 a day seems intimidating. But I believe in you! (Cheesey, I know)

Do the words have to be different? For instance: "Blah blah blah blah."
That's four words right there.

sadly, I think they address that in the "rules".

(and by address, I mean tell you that it's cheating)
