17 pages

Is that more fun than how many words?
If i end up with something that halfway makes sense, then maybe i'll try to do some proof reading, edits & revisions in December - if not... maybe i've wasted quite a bit of time. For now, it's barelling through, trying to get a lot of the story line down...
My sister read the first 15 pages & said that i'm writing neil... & yes... i guess i am. Here is a taste of Neil/Jack for you...

I’m heading to work in 5 minutes. I can’t button my pants. Not because they don’t fit, but because any pressure feels painful. Brushing my teeth has become my most hated chore causing dry heaves at each and every attempt. When I looked at my face in the mirror today, I hardly recognized the exhausted face that looked back at me. I have dark circles under my eyes and the crease from my pillow seam snaked across my cheek. My hair is brittle and disobedient and my face is pale with more blemishes than I can cover up.
Where’s my pregnancy glow?
I told Jack I feel ugly and he said he couldn’t hear me over the sound of my boobs expanding. Nice.

The last two years NaNoWriMo has had a sponsor willing to publish a draft copy of your book for free (Create Space). They do a wonderful job, and even pay for the shipping. Of course you need to complete the 50,000 words, but that is a great incentive. It makes you feel like a real author when you see your book in print. I am really hoping that they continue to do that this year again. Congrats for starting into writing your book. I hope it is successful.

Sounds like Gordon who said (when I was pregnant) that we were doing a science experiment! The guys could offer more sympathy, that's for sure!

I'm laughing, but oh so sorry at the same time! I really hope I get to read the whole thing one day. :)

And... personally, I like the word count, but number of pages is fun too. :)

HA! Don't feel bad for me, i made this up - it's just *like* something Neil would say! :) hehe. Sorry i wasn't clearer! Back to word count tomorrow!

HA....well I guess it's good to have some comic relief...although I'm sure Neil would never have said THAT!...haha...Keep going!....
