Day 20: NaNoWriMo & PiBoIdMo

Saturday, Day 20 and I finally made it over the 25,000 word mark in NaNoWriMo.  I only brought my total up by 480 words today, but it’s better than nothing.  Now I’m really at the 50% completion point.

I’m also at a place now in my story where I have to figure out some time lines so that things make sense.  Having never written a story this long I am challenged with how to bring it along toward the end.  It feels as if I’m at the top of the mountain now, the climb is over and I have to start write down the other side.  But, I also have the conflicts coming up, two – maybe three – intertwining things that will add into the story.  They have been sort of set up and are beginning to build.

Even though I reached the goal for PiBoIdMo I can either continue coming up with ideas for it or I can start working on ones I already have.   Idea 31 happened today, although perhaps not a very good one.  I do have a few in my collection over the past 20 days that appeal to me and just might make good picture books.  🙂

Tonight my husband and I went with four family members to a live theatre presentation of ‘Cinderella’ as you have never seen it before, or ever will again!  So funny and well done.

Tomorrow I am off with grandson to Sunday fellowship meeting and Sunday School, and afterward I may be attending Alpha.  When I get home I will have to work on Valley Sunshine to try to finish getting it together. I really want to get it into the mail on Monday – and still write more in my NaNo challenge each day, too.   I’m feeling the pressure.

My question to you today is:  What’s the last live theatre presentation you saw?

Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings!  🙂
