(2016 NaNoWriMo) Captain's Log, Day 11

Author's Note: The plan for November is to update my readers on my daily NaNoWriMo progress. It's a way to connect with you, of course, but it helps keep me accountable, too. Please also note that I've added the date that NaNoWriMo predicts I will be done, assuming I keep my pace.

The tally:

1. How many words I wrote on November 11, 2016. 6089 (Beat that new record from the 8th.)
2. Did I make the word count goal for the day (1667 words)? Yes
3. Am I on track to finish by November 30, 2016? Yes
4. I will finish by: November 15, 2016

Distracting thought of my day: Fortune cookies. At one point, my characters order Chinese food and laugh about fortune cookies. My plan is to have Timmy help me write my own fortunes for the novel, but in the meantime, I spent a few minutes looking at this fortune cookie database.

A few, very appropriate fortunes popped up:

The leader seeks to communicate his vision to his followers.
You are the master of every situation.
Take it easy.
Over self-confidence is equal to being blind.
Smile--tomorrow is another day.
