Yesterday turned out to be a good day, despite starting off with not feeling well. Sometime around midday I was beginning to feel like my old self again and that’s when I began answering work emails and writing. I took a break at around 2 PM and had a very late lunch and forced myself outside (and out of my pajamas) to get some fresh air. I took my MacBook Air (it goes by the name of Zuzu, just like George Bailey’s daughter in It’s a Wonderful Life), went to a local café and wrote a bit more. When I came home, I wrote while cooking dinner. I wrote while watching True Blood and New Girl. And then it happened–by 9:30PM I’d finally crossed into the land of 38K. By 10PM, I’d written 38,416 words. I am now less than 12,000 words away from completing Nanowrimo.
So, with that in mind, I bring you Chapter 7–the one with the clunky beginning. Heck, maybe the entire chapter is clunky. As I reread all of the chapters, I see the things I need to fix. It’s the same with this one, but I hope you enjoy it. 🙂
To my American readers, belated Thanksgiving tidings! Hope you stuffed yourselves with plenty of turkey, candied sweet potatoes and cranberry sauce. I will enjoy my turkey tomorrow and Sunday. 🙂 And don’t get pulled into the Black Friday hype unless you really think you’re getting an exceptional deal. Usually, those very same items are on sale again in a few days at roughly the same price. Trust me, I know. I used to work in retail in the US.
Happy reading (and writing)!
