I really don’t even LIKE turkey or dressing, and yams/sweet potatoes, potatoes, and broccoli-rice casserole are all so high in carbs . . . still, I forced myself. Just for the special day.
Happy Thanksgiving to all Americans–and anyone else feeling thankful for so many blessings.
I have been scribbling along on the NaNo novel when I could get a moment. Some of it is scribbled in an actual notebook, purple ink on flowery paper, so I estimated 200 words/page for those pages.
41000 / 50000 words. 82% done!
It’s not ALL keeper stuff; as regular readers know, I often have to go back and eliminate things. Some of this is clearly “underwater” stuff–you know, the iceberg is huge but most of it is underwater, with only the tip-top showing. Still, I like some of the scenes. And I think my train scenes will be even better once I can go back and edit/revise them using our experiences on the train.
On the train! Overnight! For two whole DAYS and a night. Each way. I don’t know if we can handle that. But we’re gonna try. All the sitting may turn me into a loon (I mean, an even bigger loon). I may have to hop off and jog through the station house at various waypoint/stops. If I do, I’ll get y’all some postcards. . . .
