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.
