NaNo: Day 6 and a Moustache

National Novel Writing Month

Daily Word Count: 996 
Total Word Count: 7,995
Words Remaining: 42,005

Today's word count is pretty dismal but I knew it would be. I have a short trip planned, and updates, and writing time for the next few days are going to be complicated. However, I  am looking forward to the 5 hour car ride tomorrow to do some much needed catching up on my story.  

I'd also like to mention something far more important than my word count. The month of November is also Movember. It's a challenge  started by The Movember Foundation to raise awareness for Men's health and fund health programs. So to all my male friends and writing buddies out there, your health is important and early detection is key, so get your checkups done, and don't let something as little as a finger get between you and your health.

And in support, here is my Movember stache:


  1. I get my checkups! Want to use my parts for as long as possible...

  2. Go men! Seriously, go get yourselves checked out by a medical professional. Congrats on your word count today Elise. You wrote that's what matters.

  3. You look so pretty in your hats. My hubs just got his check up!

  4. Cute picture! Thanks for sharing about Movember. I haven't heard about that before.

    Enjoy your writing this month. Remember, it's okay to take breaks!

  5. My parts are already broken, at least some lol finger is fine though

  6. Hubby is checked by his doc and is OK.

  7. Ha, how cute! Have fun on your trip :)

  8. The stache picture is so cute! ^_^
    Have fun on your trip! I've had some pretty good writing sessions in the car.

  9. I need to get a checkup soon. Have a great weekend Elise!

  10. Cute pic. And good of you to support Movember.

  11. Sounds like you're rocking NaNo!
    Go Elise!
    Thanks for the Movember Education!

  12. Hey Elise!

    Oh yeah, thanks for mentioning dude stuff. Very important as I should know. Yes, I have all the check-ups including having a telescopic tube stuck up my um telescopic tube :)

    Wow, NaNo! Good going and I would never have the patience to count all my words!

    Hope you had a fun car ride. Watch out for those French drivers. Mon dieu!

    Gary :)

  13. Your mo is great, Elise! :)

    I hope all the men reading this have had their checkups too!

    I hope you're doing well with NaNo. I had some 'dismal' days as well, including one where I only wrote less than 500 words. Damn "real life" getting in the way. ;) But I'm doing okay overall. Hope to do much better this week. ;)

  14. By the way, I just added you as a NaNo buddy - my name is yoghurtelf ;)

  15. Hi Elise - yes all our health checks .. but men can miss them out - so good reminder ... Good luck - life is always happening .. take care and I love mustasch!! Cheers Hilary

  16. You are model gorgeous. Seriously. Love you.

    And you're doing NaNo???? *dies* !!!!

    My condolences… ;-)
