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!

      • 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!

Odyssey of a Novice Writer

Aspiring novelist. Avid reader of fiction. Reviewer of books. By day, my undercover identity is that of meek, mild-mannered legal assistant, Kate Loveton, working in the confines of a stuffy corporate law office; by night, however, I'm a super hero: Kate Loveton, Aspiring Novelist and Spinner of Tales. My favorite words are 'Once upon a time... ' Won't you join me on my journey as I attempt to turn a hobby into something more?
