Sunday, Day 21 of NaNoWriMo and PiBoIdMo: Sunday is always a busy day for me, time away from writing, computer, home. I got up early this morning and spent some time reading my Bible, then we got ready to go pick up our grandson to go to fellowship with me. He enjoys the worship music and Sunday School. This morning he was very squirmy – his money for the offering kept falling out of his pocket, his papers and book (to keep him occupied if needed) fell onto the floor when he was enjoying the music, then his crayons followed suit so that he finally decided to pick them all up and sit there and colour. That was nice for awhile. 🙂 He is so darling.
I think I neglected to mention in last night’s post that we got snow in the afternoon so that I was ‘encouraged’ to get out my winter boots. It was cold today, icy and windy, so boots and winter jacket it was! Looks as if winter weather has arrived. (I’m not complaining but .. blah! and brrr! and — blah!)
This evening (Sunday) I did not get into Valley Sunshine but I did work on my NaNo writing. I’m continuing my wondering about how I am ever going to sort this story out and get it on paper (I’m writing longhand) in no less than 50,000 words before November 30 comes and goes, taking with it my last chance to complete this challenge for a win. Completing is winning and I must complete! I did manage to squeak out 1298 words, taking my total count to 26525 and my completion up to 54%. [just a note here: yesterday the counter finally showed my % and it was over 50% to 51%. No big deal? Well, you try writing in this pressure cooker and see how much 1% point means! 🙂 ]
Tonight in my NaNo story there was another interesting little extra that got written in, another little thing that adds to the mystery and probably aiding in the final solving of it. I think. Maybe. Quite possibly. 🙂
PiBoIdMo is not something I have to be concerned about anymore since I met the goal, but I am still trying to come up with an idea a day until that challenge ends. Today’s was not coming until just past midnight, after I had posted my word count for NaNoWriMo, but I did get an idea which I’m counting for Sunday’s. For some reason I remembered a young bluejay that was snubbed by his siblings .. and I had my story idea.
Have a great week. What’s on your agenda?
Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings! 🙂
