I'm in, though I'm going to be focusing more on pages edited than total word counts (I'll still put them in).
I really want to finish this first rewrite of my novel this month. I'm horrible at letting time pass between edits, so I can see the plot holes and stuff when I come back, and if I can get this round done by March then I can keep myself busy pulling up a million weeds for a few weeks to let the book cool. And I *am* a procrastinator, so this is great motivation to not futz around online all day.
PS Margo: I don't know why but your sigi cracks me up every time I see the "hot Norse elves" bit.

2/5: Phew--thanks Margo! I had another slash and burn day today, so if you hadn't said I didn't need to subtract I'd be in negative numbers soon! I keep forgetting to note how much I cut so I can figure out how much I actually wrote later on. Gotta put a sticky on my forehead or something to remind me.
2/10: Nice job, everyone! It's impressive how much people are getting done with all the other demands they've got. The most important thing is to keep at it, even if it's slower than we want.
2/13: *observing a moment of silence for Aimee's dearly departed 13k*
2/16: Congrats Brenda!!!!!! I love it when things all come together like that. It's one of the best feelings.
2/24: Lovely cold circulating in my house, hitting the muppet first and then me. It's hard to write when your head is stuffed like a rag doll's.
2/28: 84 pages left to edit with one day left in the month. Think I'm going to miss that goal somehow....
Oh well. 250+ pages, when I slashed and burned as much as I did (and rewrote close to 100 page of those), is still pretty good. The first draft is now more second draft, and isn't nearly as sucky. I'll call it a win.
2/29: Great job, everyone! No matter how many words we did (and some of you were rock stars on the word counts), it's more than we had at the start of the month!
