Hmm. Got 1500 words or so of new material written, so that was good. It plays into Jack the Ripper mythology a teensy bit, but fortunately that's ridiculously well-documented, so I just need to brush up on my facts a bit. Oh, and since a few people have asked, I'm not doing NaNoWriMo proper this year, since I finally realized that it just doesn't mesh all that well with my process--if only because my "process" (the best word I can think of to describe it, even though it seems kind of pretentious) is kind of unruly. I can write a lot in a short amount of time, or I can write steadily for a long period of time, but I can't do both at the same time. So right now, I've been trying to do the latter--keep writing on one project TO THE DEATH, but that doesn't mean I'm moving at NaNo speeds. I've been writing for two months and I'm hoping to finish up in 6-8 weeks, which may be ridiculously optimistic on my part; I don't know. I might copy any new material written after October 31 into a NaNo file just to see how many words it ends up being, but I'm not gunning for 50,000 new words so much as I am a complete, semi-polished draft--which is actually the antithesis of NaNo. So what I'm saying is, I'm doing something very similar, only over a course of several months instead of one. So I'm kind of here with you in spirit, but my deadline isn't so pressing.
Ten Tales of Terror: Super-short stories from six writers, including Neil Gaiman, with audio of the writers reading them as well. Except that I count more than six stories. Eh, it's all good. (Hee, "Zombie Cat.") Scroll down to the bottom for more audio as well.
