Happy December first, everyone!
For some of you, yesterday was spent frantically writing. You may have written “The End,” or “To Be Continued,” or maybe just finished Chapter 4. Regardless, for some writers, yesterday marked the last day of NaNoWriMo, and today is called, “Yay, I don’t have to write today.”
Even if you didn’t finish your novel, just remember this: so long as you gave it your best, you’re still a winner in my book. 😀 Way to go, Winner!
For me, personally, November 30th was a strange day. And it started at 12:35 a.m. when I, half in a dream, was awoken by the loud buzzing of my phone. And it didn’t stop. I soon discovered that it was an alert, making haste to inform me of the tornado warning in my county. Thankfully, it didn’t get close enough to our house for it to be a real danger.
The evening of the 29th, I’d pictured the whole day in my mind’s eye. I was going to don my most colorful dress, spend the morning unpacking boxes (as we moved recently), eat a delicious lunch, and spend the rest of the afternoon writing. It wasn’t exactly like that.
It was still raining when I woke up the next morning. I wore the bright dress, but it didn’t quite make up for the dreariness outside. I spent the morning on my laptop, playing online games, rather than unpacking boxes. And most of my family wasn’t feeling well. To top it off, my mom told me around lunchtime that I was on babysitting duty for the afternoon. Oh, boy.
But today is a new day! A new day in which we are free from writing, for a little while that is. 😉 And Christmas is coming up. Hooray to that!
How was your November 30th? What are your December/January plans? What did you learn this November? It’d make my day to hear about your NaNo experience! 🙂 Have a fantastic December first, Winner!
