How I manage Nano

Here's where my accountant genes come into play. Is this pathetic or what?

On the other hand, it's keeping me on track as you can see. Even though some days I might write less and others more, I'm trying to maintain the close pace to what I need per day.

I like watching my bars keep on perfect pace with my target line. This is the sort of thing I do at work every day and it seems to be working for a billion dollar corporation. Why not me?

How about you? Do you write what you can each day, knowing you need a certain number of words to finish NaNo in 30 days, or do you just keep going like gangbusters until you hit 50k?

I know people who are done. Others who are stalled. Everyone works a little differently. And it's fun to hear what works and what doesn't.
