Day 30: NaNoWriMo & PiBoIdMo

Tuesday, Day 30 of NaNoWriMo — I’m SO TIRED!  Last night I stayed up and wrote until 4 AM.  As I posted yesterday I did what I said I would do … wrote until I couldn’t stay awake to write another word.  That is just what happened.  (I’m glad I did this because I had several interruptions today that would added stress to completing.)  So at around 4:30 AM I had just relaxed beside my husband and his alarm went off.  I went to sleep and slept until my alarm went off around 8:30, then I was up and wrote until I finished NaNo.  So I WON!  It’s a feeling of accomplishment and relief that I actually completed it and got my ‘novel’ validated on time on the site.  I did use the program that generates paragraphs and words.  When I finished the challenge and posted my word total, then I generated the number of words I had recorded – which was 50265 – and submitted that to make it official.  (I’m actually having trouble staying awake right now to write this post.)  I have the NaNoWriMo challenge 101% completed!

Even though I completed the 50K challenge, my story is not completed.  I left a major conflict unresolved and hope to continue writing to finish the story.

PiBoIdMo ended today, too.  I completed with 44 ideas. It was a wonderful experience for me.

Have you pushed yourself beyond what you thought you could do?

Thanks for readings, and … Creative Musings!  🙂

  1. Wow! You must be stonkered. I know I would be! Sleep well and finish strong when your strength is renewed. 🙂



    • You know what? Even though I am not sure what stonkered means — I am! 🙂 I think it must be the same as ‘stoked’ – and yes I am that, too. It is very rewarding to prove to myself that I can do it.
      I thought I would be sleeping longer this morning but here I am, very tired but with much to do such as dusting, vacuuming, and a big ole’ heap o’ dishes. Back to reality but .. always thinking now of the next twist and turn in the world of that story that needs to be finished.
      Thanks for your comment, Kat. I’m glad to have met you through PiBoIdMo. 🙂


I look forward to reading your greatly appreciated comments. Thanks for making my day! :)
