So I bypassed posting about Camp NaNoWriMo for quite a few days…I was busy napping, writing, and doing real life stuff like writing and napping, no we cleaned, organized, cooked, watched movies, and I wrote and napped. Seriously, pretty much all I did ALL day Saturday was write then nap, nap then write, and repeat. Saturday was CampNaNoWriMo’s Writing Marathon and I wrote in spurts. Sitting at the computer for 5-8 hours non-stop is not conducive to having uterine fibroids so I broke it up into increments. My husband stayed in pajamas all day and he and I napped together for a while, and then we napped separately. While I was napping he was applying for jobs on the computer and while I was writing he was napping. Then we just hung out and ate a late dinner and watched a movie. I did change out of my pajamas but it wasn’t until later in the day and then by early evening I was right back in those wonderfully comfortable clothes called pajamas, along with my fuzzy penguin bedroom slippers and my terry cloth bathrobe.
So how has Camp NaNoWriMo been? I’m at around 25,600+ words right now. And I’m about to start writing again. So I’m right on target, or just a little over. I’m not running out of steam, but the people around me, except for my husband don’t take it serious. My husband is proud of me, believes in me, and supports me, but even he doesn’t see it the way I see it, but then again I’m a little obsessive about it so he keeps me grounded, which is a good thing. I needed that sleep over the weekend. I’d been staying up late every night, until the wee hours of the morning writing, and I was sleep deprived and beginning to get grumpy. I feel much better now.
Yes, it is a little after 3 AM my time and I am up, but I just woke up. I went to sleep around 9:30 or 10 PM, and I woke up 15 minutes ago. Put on coffee, and began responding to some comments on my blog, once I’m finished with this post I’ll respond to a few emails, then FB, then I’ll begin writing the rest of Chapter 9. I’m supposed to babysit Mr. Rockstar’s niece and nephew around 9:30 this morning so that my sister-in-law can go to her oldest daughter’s 2nd grade spelling B. I remember spelling B’s. I was in quite a few. I loved them. So I’ll be busy during my peak hours of either writing or sleeping, thus I’m up early and went to sleep early. My sleep schedule is back on track for the most part.
One of the main reason’s I joined Camp NaNoWriMo was so that I could get inspiration, so that I could finish a novel (I’ve started several but have never finished one), and so that I could get back into the swing of things as a writer. I put my writing on the back burner for years and I used to write something, whether it was poetry or a short story or whatever every day. So instead of just dreaming about writing a book one day I decided to make it happen. I’m so glad I did. Like I’ve said before, I don’t care if the book is crap. I don’t care if it needs a bulldozer to edit it, I’ll have finished a book and that’s an obstacle to overcome–it automatically makes me a winner.
So sorry my posts have been few and far between lately. I’ve been busy writing my novel in 30 days, busy researching things for it, and I’ve been keeping up with my reader (for the most part) so I’ve read a few posts from blogs I follow I just haven’t really been able to write my own. I’ll try to do better. 😀
Hope all of you have a great day!
