Because people were bugging me about it (on LiveJournal, no less), an update to my progress:
Word count for 02 Nov: 0
Cumulative word count for the month: 0
Estimated word count at month's end: 0
Despite the encouraging progress I've made so far, I don't think this rate is really sustainable; I still think my estimated word count for the month might be a bit on the high side.
