NaNoWriMo: Day 29 ~ The End (Almost)
One hundred words from successfully completing my NaNoWriMo challenge. For the first time in the four years I've tried it.
It's not a perfect story. It has flaws. It will need a lot—a lot!—of work. But I am so excited about the finish line that I got up EXTRA early to carve out another 50 words so that I could focus on those last 100. Well, 98, because I fully intend to use THE END as my last two words.
Which means, it will be the final milestone celebration for this part of the challenge.
Throughout the month, I've celebrated each major accomplishment. I bought myself a new Spiderman comic. I spent an entire day reading when I should have been writing or running. And when I hit the 4,000-word mark, I indulged in a pumpkin spice hot chocolate.
So what will I do tomorrow?
GO TO THE BOOK STORE, of course! As a way of congratulating myself for completing my very first NaNoWriMo challenge, I am going to buy myself a new novel. Maybe two. And, I'm getting a new notebook.
And as if that wasn't enough, my mom says Grandma is making me my own chocolate zucchini loaf. Obviously I'll share (even though she makes the best chocolate zucchini loaf in the world), but it's just really cool that she thought of it!
What will you do to celebrate? Hey, if you want to share your story with me, I'll enter you in a draw to win a classroom (or personal) set of the Superman Duffy books.
Gotta jet! Good luck with those final words...
