Day 6 – The magic 10,000!!
Oh goodness, what a day it has been!
First, the horse I picked out for our workplace Melbourne Cup Day race led all the way from the start, then managed to stuff it up at the last corner. I still don’t know where he placed. So…no wins there. No wins on our massive $100 million lotto either. Not moving to the states this month, after all 😉
There were a couple of wins though. The first one was winning Best Dressed Female at our Mebourne Cup lunch at work. Go me!!! I now have a lovely box of chocolates to munch on while I write. I don’t know what it is about my workplace, but food seems to be a huge thing. I’ll never lose weight while I work for them LOL
The second, and probably the best, win of the day, was hitting that magic 10,000 words target for NaNoWriMo!! I actually did it! I feel SO great. I didn’t think I would. The pain in my hands today has been extreme, and I’m thinking a trip to the Doctor is in order. It took me 20 minutes to write less than 200 words earlier this evening. I was just devastated. I didn’t want to see a “0 words written today” in my stats, but I honestly thought that’s what would happen.
But, with the help of my fellow beautiful NaNo participants and a couple of agonising word sprints, I limped in tonight with a total of 10,158 words, and I couldn’t be happier!!
My hands hurt, my back hurts, my eyes are strained.
Damnit though, I feel like a writer.
I love my story, I love my MC, and i’m loving NaNo. This little story may never see the light of day, but I’m happy knowing that I’ll see the end of it.
Goodnight, fellow Wrimos and my other, loyal and lovely readers. It’s time for me to take myself off to bed.
Have a great day (or night…)
Love to all
