Hecho … Fini … Gemacht … Finito … Kufanyika … Done!

I am so done with Camp NaNoWriMo!  Roughly 50,349 words completed as of last night ;)  I say roughly because I used the opportunity to finish a previous novel so I had to add those words to the word count for my current novel which means I had to use a calculator because I’m a bit dyslexic with numbers and so the important thing is I made it to 50,000!  And I actually have an ending with this novel. Yup, a beginning, middle and an end.  That’s no small feat for me since endings are something I have always struggled with.

Now that I am thoroughly exhausted with banging at my keyboard, I have callouses on my fingertips, my fingernails are totally ruined and my butt is in the shape of a chair seat (tonight’s yoga class will take care of that, I hope), now I have to go to my day job and stare at a computer for a minimum of 8 hours.  Frankly, not something I’m really in the mood for, but now at least I won’t be distracted by trying to squeeze in a few words every time I run a query that takes more than 5 minutes to process :)

I want to thank the support of all my fellow bloggers and campers out there who have urged me on.  I plan to take the next month to reacquaint myself with the wonders of WordPress and add more pages to my blog, catch up with the adventures of my fellow bloggers, and not do any writing (other than blogging).  I need a break and I have so many other projects that need my attention.  More on those things later.

For now, many thanks to all!

  1. Well done! Good luck with yoga..!


    • Thanks. Yoga really helps. Even if I’m not in the mood to practice, I always feel sooo much better afterwards ;)


      • I went to Yoga once and ended up in fits of giggles when I was supposed to be relaxing – I’ve not been since! I sometimes think I should try it again!!


        • Do try it again! Find a studio where they have a sense of humor. Sometimes I fall out of a pose because my instructor is making me laugh :). I love yoga but I don’t like to take things too seriously. Laughter can be a great way to relax too!


  2. “now I have to go to my day job and stare at a computer for a minimum of 8 hours.”

    How I feel your pain!


    • Indeed! And today I get to check numbers for our annual vital statistics report … Zzzzzzzzzzz


  3. Congratulations! Looking forward to reading more of your blogs!
