Today is the last day for NaPoWriMo & Camp NaNoWriMo. I gave it my best. I finished out my Camp NaNoWriMo goal of 20,000 words yesterday with 20,018. I did complete Zephyr & Zinc which was nice.
I have no poem for today. The same as the prior days. My sister got sick after they came home from Belgium. A short while later, the baby ended up sick. After 3 days of being sneezed, coughed, and drooled on, I became sick too. I spent Days 26 & 27 primarily in bed asleep. I did crank out a bunch of editing on Sunday. An hour of sleep, a chapter of the manuscript, an hour of sleep, another chapter. Rinse. Repeat.
The editing work completed in full on Day 28 despite absolute and utter exhaustion. Day 29 had me going stir-crazy. My sister and brother-in-law were working from home so I managed to escape during regular daylight hours for some me time but writing was not forthcoming. Today reminds me that I should not have gone out yesterday. I can barely keep my eyes open. Of course, the nephew seems to be doing better. He’s eating more, and is extremely hyper. Barely functional Auntie and a hyper baby = my personal version of Hell. Day 28 wasn’t all that great either with very weak & sick Auntie and a baby sick with a cold & bronchitis.
So this month of writing exstravaganza ends on a down note. It was good while it lasted. I wrote far more than I thought I would.
In total, I wrote 46 poems.
