NaNoWriMo – Still On Track

Well, it’s 11:55 PM Sunday night and I am finished with my writing today.  I have written 30,100 words thus far.  I am just barely on pace.  Still, it feels good that there are only 20,000 more words to go.  I’m amazed I’ve made it this far as I haven’t so much as glanced at my notes since day 2.  This has all been seat of my pants writing.  I’ll have to let you know if I ever read what I’ve written, if it has worked or not. I think…maybe it has.

The voting over at The Clarity of Night closed this evening.  Winners will be announced tomorrow.  I’m not worried.  I know I have no shot at winning.  With most of the entries getting 15 and 20 comments and mine getting 9 (two of which were mine) I think it’s safe to say I won’t be getting any prizes.  That’s ok, though, because I liked my entry.

The weekend was crazy.  I felt like crap the whole time, played ice hockey Saturday morning anyhow, my daughter didn’t take much of a nap Saturday, watched a movie Saturday night with my wife and daughter and had a blast.  On Sunday I didn’t feel much better, but we went to the mall to pick out a Christmas dress for my daughter, we ate lunch at a restaurant, and it snowed the first real snow of the year.  We also discovered my daughter has two new molars.

It was a disastrous weekend for my sports teams.  The Penguins, Penn State Football, and the Steelers all lost.  So did the hockey team I play on. Just a bad sports weekend.

After all this, though, I still think it was an amazing weekend.  I’m so happy I’ve hit my NaNoWriMo goals thus far.
