For the sake of accountability, I'm going to be posting my JaNoWriMo daily word count here. I hope that's all right.

I'm still not sure what my target WC should be, though I'm thinking 25k since I want to give myself some time to get caught up on my web design and other pursuits, something I didn't have the luxury of back in November. And also time to finish the prep work that didn't get done last October.

So...today's word count:

Wednesday (1/2/13)'s Word Count: 176
Total Word Count: 307

I was off work today, so I intended to write a lot more today, but I slept in super late, and I ended up spending hours playing Super Smash Bros. Brawl (which I got when I exchanged the WiiU game my brother bought me for Christmas by accident, not knowing the Wii and the WiiU are not the same thing) instead. The little writing I did get done I did when I got stuck in this one spot and texted my brother to ask how to get out of it - since he was ahead of me on that mode of the game - and was waiting for him to text back.

So, if I start tomorrow with the 25k word count, I'll have to write 893 words (well, 892.857142857; I rounded) a day to meet it by January 31st. That sounds reasonable, right? If I get back to my 30-minute sprints of trying to write 500 words every morning, that will knock off over half of it right there.

Happy 2nd/3rd day of JaNoWriMo!

Edit 1/3/13: Just realized that I only got 307 because Word also counted the 6 words making up the title I made for the document. I should have selected just the novel text itself for the count. Oops. So my actual total word count as of 1/2/13 is actually 301. Sorry about that.

Also, I added a little bar to my journal to show my JaNoWriMo progress, using the new HTML5 <progress> tag, since we don't have those official little word count widgets like we did for NaNoWriMo. You can find out how to do it here. Word of caution: the <progress> tag is not supported in IE or Safari, so if you view my journal in one of those browsers, the progress bar will not appear, though the text with the actual word count will. I will add a fallback right now for those browsers.
