End of NaNoWriMo

5:45PM - I started the day with 68 000 words. I'm currently at 72 237. These last 3 000 are the hardest words I've ever had to write. I'm feeling so, so much opposition and I can't figure out where it's coming from. I WANT to reach 75 000, I know I will, no matter how painful, but at the same I do NOT want to write any more. It's the most extreme push and pull I've ever felt about everything, especially in writing. I've experienced it before, but not like this. It's slightly terrifying. I will reach 75K. I will do it. But why is it so hard?

6:36PM - 72 428. I went to eat supper. Remember when I wrote 2 500 words in 30 minutes and injured my thumb to it? I don't think I could pull that off again. I wish I had the steam to do that right now. But I don't. I want to play video games...gotta finish this first, hup.

6:54PM - 73 507. I've decided to break the last 2 000 into 250 word parts. I'm doing something random and different for each of them, usually just a little slice-of-life about some of the characters that live in my head. I can write 250 words in one 'go', so I'm hoping this will make it easier to finish.


7:24PM - 75 001. AHHH WHOOOO DONE FINALLY. Gimme a sec, I just want to finish this part...

7:36PM - 75 073, final count. I can't believe I'm done! :D Now that I'm finished, I can't believe getting those last three thousand words was so hard XD It feels like it was a piece of cake now ;) Anyhow, the last thing I want to do right now is keep typing. I want to go play some Bit.Trip. Expect a return to regularly scheduled programming on Friday :)
