13,800. Getting there, slowly but surely. Actually, I got about 2500 words written in an hour. Geeky Boy came down with his friend and Geeky Girl.
GB: How's it going, mom? How many words do you have?
Me: Hmm, let me check. (clicking on profile)
Friend: What are you doing?
GB: (positively beaming): She's writing a novel.
Friend: Really? What happens if you finish?
Me: Fame and fortune. (giggling a little) You guys could write one.
GB and Friend: No way, huh uh. (general denial)
GB: I can't get the words out of my head.
They're so cute. I couldn't convince either of them to try it.
