Stick a fork in me, I'm done for the day.
I didn't stay up late and start Nano at midnight, but I did find myself waking early. So. I've been at the keyboard since about six a.m with a couple of hours off throughout the day for breaks. It's now just gone 7pm, and I suspect the parent wants feeding. I'm also tired.
The total word count is 8260. As soon as the Nano site has a widget organised, I'll post it here for word count updates.
The death toll so far is one marine and one rodent. I expect the toll to rise in the coming days.
