I just hit 50,000 words! Woohoo! I can have a life again! NaNoWriMo, you are my bitch.

Of course, this is 50k when counting 20k of my first (failed) novel and 30k of my second. I'm going to keep writing though, because I want to finish this goddamn novel (read: hit 50k in at least one of these novels). I just... kind of don't know how that's going to happen. I have a few more scenes to write before I get to the part of the novel on which I'm stuck.

Which would you rather read in a chick lit novel?
The protagonist getting knocked up, someone getting murdered (which is subsequently solved by the protagonist), the protagonist being saddled with someone else's kid and figuring out what to do, the protagonist being stalked, dragons suddenly appearing and eating the entire cast (no, wait, wrong story)... something... else...? PLEASE HELP ME I AM DESPERATE.

After the sex scene, vigilante Puritan time travellers kidnap protagonist, force her to card wool for 20,000 words.

I'm... speechless.

Time to create my vigilante Puritan time travelers!

(Seriously, I may just need to, ahem, use this idea in the future. I love it. Minus the carding wool thing. But... I can work with that. ;)

ahh, that reminds me of reading Queen of Spades by Pushkin in the original Russian... far too many arcane/esoteric words regarding the fashion trends of the 1820s that will never be useful. :P
