Ow. I absolutely killed my wrists today coding and working on my stupid school project. I think it's been building up since I started this thing. As it stands, I can't really use my thumbs without pain shooting up both my arms. I *did* write around 4,000 words today by hand (which I doubt helped), but the thought of typing them makes me want to crawl underneath something. I can't type in my braces. So I'm going to slap the bastard things on and pop anti-inflammatories and hope it's better by tonight. And if it's not... well, I'll suck it up and hurt. I do have tequila. *sigh* I should really get a peripheral keyboard. It was never this bad when I had the desktop. Maybe I'll do that this afternoon.

And why does the cat want to eat my French dictionary?

Working title: Harry Potter and the Hillbilly Mafia
Pairing: Harry/OMC (temporary), future HP/SS (really, I promise!)
Chapter: 13
Words: 1843
Rating: PG
Summary: Fast-forward! It's April 1999. Harry has more...um...dealings with Nick, who we met in the last chapter. If you didn't want to read that dreck, all you have to know is that he's a mysterious businessman with lots of money.
Notes: Okay, I feel like I'm a little more back on track now. Starting now is what I based the whole outline around. I don't know why I didn't just start the damn novel here. Alas. Stupid exposition.

Word count wossit seems to be broken at the mo, but total so far:

Yay! As long as I hit 25,000 by Monday, I'm golden.

Working title: Harry Potter and the Hillbilly Mafia
Pairing: future HP/SS
Chapter: 11
Words: 1251
Rating: PG
Summary: Harry gets a job, learns to drive, and drinks a lot.
Notes: This is today's chapter. Moving things along! I've come to the conclusion that if I chronicle every single day, this thing will never get done. Titles from David Bowie. And w00t to breaking 15,000!! :D

One or two more chapters after this, and then the timeline is skipping ahead a *lot.*

Chapter: 10
Words: 1120
Rating: PG
Summary: Back at Hogwarts, the search for Harry continues.
Notes: This is actually yesterday's chapter. I'm still working on today's. Not much going on here, except that I've had another epiphany, which will get worked into the chapter I'm working on. Titles from Belle and Sebastian. I'm *so* unhappy with this chapter, though. It didn't go the way I wanted it to. Grr.

Chapter: 9
Words: 2612
Rating: G
Summary: Harry looks for his relatives.
Notes: All right, I'll warn you up-front: there's a Dreaded OFC in this chapter. But I *promise* she's there for a very, very good reason. And there will be absolutely no sue!sex. She's not even really a Sue-- right now she's just kind of there. Yeah, okay, she's a librarian and wears glasses, but the similarities end there. This is long and plotty, but it gets some things done that needed to be done. Though I'm rather afraid I've written Harry as too dumb here.

Chapter: 8
Words: 1137
Rating: PG
Summary: Severus contemplates his actions and makes progress on finding Harry.
Notes: I think I've exhausted my allotted usage of the word "damn" for the rest of the year. Titles from New Order. And *phew!* Past 10,000! Just.

I have been a physical and emotional mess the past few days. None of it's NaNo-induced, but it's made writing very hard. I was really hoping to get past the 10,000 mark yesterday, and then today, but it wouldn't happen. Remus and Snape just kind of sat there staring at each other and wouldn't cooperate. And the Harry-in-America arc is just boring the shit out of me. I don't know why I had to put in that thing about him finding his relatives, because now I have to carry it through so he can go on to the next thing. It's taking everything I have not to just stick in a "six months later" and go from there. If things don't look up soon, I just might. I have a new job, a whole bunch of beta-reading to finish up, and an RP plot that starts (gulp) tomorrow. Plus school. Oh yeah, I keep forgetting about that silly technicality that my entire future hinges on.

Ugh. Hopefully I'll be more inspired tonight.

Chapter: 7
Words: 1726
Rating: R
Summary: Severus has a...um...talk with a certain werewolf. There *is* plot here, I swear.
Notes: I don't know what's wrong with me. This wasn't in the outline. It's only going to cause me problems. I think my muse has been watching too much gay porn or something. I think this contains the most disjointed sex scene I have ever written in my life. O.o But it's kinda hot if I do say so myself. I may just get rid of this chapter entirely once editing time rolls around. I... um... yeah. I'm very sorry for this. If you don't bother reading it, I don't think it'll make much difference in your understanding of everything else.
