What will it take?

Is it possible to do NaNo this year? It was a challenge in 2006, working on ~1700 words/day. How much time do I have this year?

Since I'll be out of town for 6 days at the end of November, that means I have to get this finished and in the word processor by Nov 24. I should be able to find a WiFi connection to upload the file when the validator opens up after the 25th. I'll be gone hunting for 6 days in the middle, which leaves 30-12=18 days total.

Realistically, Monday through Friday is the only time I can do this. That gives me 11 days. Oops, subtract Veteran's Day, leaves 10 days. That's 5000 words/day. There were some days in 2006 when I did 3000/day, but they were unusual. I can feel my wrists hurting already.

If only I didn't have a day job.

Just knowing the right cheat code isn't enough to give you god-like power. You have to be willing to cheat.
