NaNoWriMo: Day 20 or “The Day My Niece Got Engaged”

Well, not the actual day but the day it was announced.

So very happy for her!

But it seems like just yesterday she was this little girl:

Well, the bigger of those two little girls.

She was one of our flower girls and now she’s going to get married. How time flies…

By the way, as I write this, I’m completely ignoring how fast my own children are growing and pretending they’ll stay kids forever.

In the meantime, I’ve gotten some writing done today. Not as much as I’d hoped [but I rarely do], but some.

Day 19: 2785 words
Total: 40,000 words

One of my dear friends and critique partners – Joanna – was cheering me to 40K last night and made me promise to text her whatever the 40,000th word was since she’s an hour ahead of me and went to bed.

The funny thing?

It wasn’t even a word. It was a # at a scene break ;).

Gotta love it!
