Fellow NaNoWriMo participant Andrew has spotted a few chronological inconsistencies/conflicts with my current timeframe, so I have retroactively shifted all the events forward a week. Sorry if that confuses you, but it makes a few things fit better (some of which you probably would not notice if you weren't a Purdue student, and maybe not even then, but I digress).
I'm trying to build up some plot before I get to the good juicy action. I hope you aren't as sick of this as I am already.
Additionally, I've added my current word count to the end of each post. Right now I'm slightly behind the finish-at-midnight on Nov. 30th pace, but I'm proud of what I've got so far. Gotta keep writing!
