My NaNoWriMo 2014 Project

Some thoughts on my NaNoWriMo 2014 experiences so far...
I was under impression that November was supposed to start on Monday (yeah, sad time-keeping skills, I know...), so instead of getting my word count up during the past weekend I was working on one of my other projects (that is, I was doing one of the big 'No-Nos' of the NaNoWriMo - cheating on my NaNo novel with another novel.) So Monday comes and I realize I'm behind by 2 days already, so I quickly jump in, trying to catch up and all.
NaNo is stressful, but in a good way, I guess, as it opens one's eyes to the greety sweaty bits of the writing process. Apparently, quite a few best-sellers out there have started out as NaNo projects (what comes to mind: WOOL; THE NIGHT CIRCUS; THE DARWIN ELEVATOR)...
Glitches... Having trouble updating my word count - everything works so slowly or doesn't work at all via Chrome, so I start using Firefox again, just to get the NaNo website to work. 
NaNo got digital badges! Awesom…
