8,000 words

Now I’ve got some momentum. I’ve gotten a lot of the exposition out of the way, so it’s on to the meat! Should be fairly smooth now, moving the plot along, lots of dialogue. I’m a genius at dialogue (Or, as my friend Troy would rightfully point out: Well, I’m a genius at writing dialogue). My fear now is running out of plot far short of 50,000 words.

I hope my buddies Megan, Lauren, Madeline, and Ryan have started and just aren’t updating their word count (all of which are currently at zero). According to this forum posting, the number one reason people who sign up don’t finish NaNoWriMo is, they don’t start! Come on, guys. I believe in you (except for Ryan)!
