Nano Day 4 - Word Count 10,124

I don't like to get into politics too much, but it was a historic day. Honestly, I've been paranoid the last month or so that a McCain victory on 11/4 would kill my writing mood. But tonight's delightful news still had that effect. It's a damn big event, and my mind keeps wandering to it.

What can I say? Someday my kids will ask me where I was the day Obama was elected, and I'll be able to say I was at home, writing a novel.

I like that.

My goal tonight of 2000 words was stalled at 1500 by the headlines. Tomorrow I should get my pace back, once the excitement dies off. And I'm still head of schedule, so a little break for celebration can be forgiven.
