So... yeah, I didn't do it. I had hoped to write 5000 words today, but I wrote about 4000 less than that. But I do have a valid excuse: I was out all day.
I woke up at 11 (I stayed up late last night), and read for a little bit, and then got a text from my friend telling me that a few of my friends were going downtown today. So I was all, "Yay, I want to go." And then I went, and didn't get home until 8.
But right when I got home, I sat down and wrote as much as I could while keeping my eyes open. I'm tired, and I want to sleep.
But, if I do not make plans tomorrow, rest assured that I will write those 4000 words I missed, plus more if I can manage. My real goal for tomorrow is 9000, but I don't know if I can handle that. Either way, I am winning NaNoWriMo this year.
There is no turning back after all this work.

UPDATE: You know what, no! I will not sleep until I get to 35000 tonight. That's my final word on that. So, I'm gonna go grab me some diet coke and get to work. Wish me luck!
UPDATE #2: I couldn't do it. I wrote another 250 words, but I am so drained.
