20,062

Broke 20,000 words today! Hurray! I am almost caught up. 

My story is a little goofy, but the most important thing is to just get it written. 

My characters are not behaving well. They keep causing problems for my main character. Poor thing. Someone told her she looks like a demented librarian today. 
Here's a homemade caramel coffee drink I made this evening. And my NaNo stats. 

Now, before you get too impressed with today's number, I actually added a document that I hadn't counted and updated my word count that was inaccurate when I started. But it looks kind of cool, doesn't it?

Pocky Day

1111 is sometimes called Pocky Day in Japan. The reason is a little silly. Pocky are a stick-shaped snack, so they kind of look like the number 1. 

Each year, I look forward to Pocky Day, because it's kind of fun. 

This year, I decided that I wanted to have a Pocky party. So I invited two friends over, and I found several flavors. 

We had a lot of fun! One friend brought homemade pumpkin soup, so we enjoyed that as well. 

In other news, we have a lovely blanket of snow now that really hit after I got home from work. In the driveway, it's about pinky deep. 

This is from this morning, when it was a thick dusting. 
Although it kept snowing, the stuff on the ground mostly melted by afternoon. But once the sun went down, it got slick and then layered back up.
