Day 5: NaNoWriMo & PiBoIdMo

Wow!  It’s the end of day 5 already in these challenges.  Today I only got around 13oo words written for NaNoWriMo, less than the 1667 I was supposed to write, but I was ahead so didn’t really lose anything.  As it adds up, I’m 300 words into the next day.  The weekends are going to be much harder to find writing time, I think, and I’m not sure how to keep this story going so that it makes sense, but aside from that .. it’s all good!  🙂

When only two days into the NaNoWriMo challenge, I started to talk to my husband about something that evening, then stopped, thought a moment, and said, “Oh, never mind, that isn’t here, that’s in my story!”  🙂

Even though I am already thinking in terms of my story much of the time, I also am aware of the little things going on around me.  There are picture book ideas everywhere.  Today I captured three for PiBoIdMo.  Of course, some of those will never go anywhere, but this is all part of the brainstorming that has to happen in writing.  It’s fun.

This evening I took a pause from writing to do some reading.  I am still working my way through the Bible, but I also read another little book today and added it to My “have read” book list page.

It has been a very windy and rainy day here in Nova Scotia, but we are having warm days and warm nights after a cold spell.  Our beautiful leaves have finally reached the end of their colourful display, I’m afraid.  The wind has been plucking most off their trees and is now blowing them helter- skelter.  It makes the trees bare of colour but adds variety to lawns and fields.

Don’t forget to check my new page: NaNoWriMo Updates (2010).

Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings!  🙂
