Nano update post - halfway point

Nuts and bolts:

33,000 words as of end of day yesterday. This is well ahead of schedule; I've been ahead the whole time as far as I can see. I've got a lot of the main story arc down and it's looking like this barebones version will probably line up pretty well with the 50K mark.

Stats so far--
Random timeframe shifts: 7
Dream sequences: 3
Action scenes: 3
Deaths: 2
Clumsy makeouts: 1
Incidences of zombies drinking whiskey: 1
Incidences of cuddlingSHARING BODY HEAT: 2
Ways in which this is more of a fanfic than a novel: too many to count. :|

Which brings me to the bad news: yeah, this isn't really a novel. It's a fanfic with the names changed. I'm not sure what to do about that. (Edited out for whininess)

Edited to add: I'll probably just keep pushing through anyway, no worries. At very worst, I'll just change the names back and post it as fanfic. Not like that's a terrible outcome for a month's effort. It's just not what I was hoping for, you know?

I'm trying, I'm trying! I'm hoping that turns out to be the case, but knowing my luck, probably not heh.
