Looks like my efforts at Nano this year will come to nothing.  Ever since finishing my exam I have had just about zero desire to sit in front of the computer and exercise the brain.  I think it wants a bit of a rest, and I guess I can't blame it for that.

So what happened to days 7-10?

You may have been asking yourselves the question posed in this post's title. Even if you haven't, it's now stuck in your head so I will answer it for you.  Exams happened.  Well, to be specific, a single exam, otherwise know as the LAST ONE FOR MY DEGREE!  So I figured I should probably have a bit of a red-hot go at doing well.

And I think I did.  So I am finished.  10.5 years after I started, I will get another piece of paper to hang on the wall.

On April 1st.  How appropriate.

Day 6: 8078 words

Whoops. Falling further behind.  Scary to think that some people are over the 50k word limit already.  Oh well, the naked woman is awake in the Earl's house, now to keep the philandering son away!

Day 5: 7225 words

Study and work continue apace.  Tonight's total was entirely written after some ADR work, so that's not too bad.  I'm about 1100 behind the daily average, but am writing something each day.  The buck has been killed and the naked woman has appeared.

Day 4: 5959 words

A good day.  Still behind about 700 words, but I made up a little bit of ground.  Fire and circles.

Day 3: 4255 words

Again, under the par word count, but at least I'm still writing!  With any luck I'll sneak out tomorrow lunchtime and bang out a few extra words so I can get flying tomorrow night and regain some ground.  Maybe.

Day 2: 3223 words

A bit behind, but manageable.  The witch is dead, battle of Hastings lost, and the solar probe should take off tomorrow.

Day 1: 1740 words

Made a start and even beat the word count for the day.  The storm has stopped, the pyre is built and the mob is approaching.
