Way too pumped to write much of a post here, but my total NaNoWriMo word count is now at a massive, artery-clogging 49,090. Let’s see how this looks on a bar graph, shall we:
49090 / 50000 words. 98% done!
Yes, that’s 98% done! Despite the occasional tickle fight, shouts of “Figgy pudding!” (the funniest phrase in the English language), helping Junior a little with his train set, and helping Unfocused Girl clean up her box of beads after I accidentally walked into it (oops), I knocked out just under 3,000 words today — for a total of 49,090, did I mention that? — and now have less than 1,000 words to go before I can declare myself a winner and do the dance of TOTAL VICTORY!
Excuse me, I need a moment.
Thank you. I have also started considering the possibility of post-NaNoWriMo let down. What will I do when I no longer have my time filled by generating 2000-3000 words of fiction almost single day? How will I deal with the adrenaline crash? I suspect everyone has their own way of coping after NaNo ends. Me, I suspect I will handle it by eating cookies.
As if our December wasn’t going to be crazy enough, the Siren is back to her blog with a plan that makes NaNoWriMo look positively sedate. Mmm, tasty, tasty insanity.
