just write five more minutes, Cause there’s only 18 days of nano left. LOL
Wednesday night write in. I love this event. Once again I brought my kiddo. Without babysitter again. I hate the idea of finding a new one. I would rather keep tolerating her flakiness because she is amazing with my son, when she shows up.
I have spent a lot of posts talking about the hows of writing. Finding the time. Etc. I thought I might touch on the actual writing itself. Last year I wrote this spy novel. It felt like every sentence need an hour’s research. I couldn’t just let it roll out. And when I did just let it roll I found later I had to change half of it because my time line was out of whack or some other major flaw. This time the words just flow. It’s Snoqualmie Falls after a huge storm. I almost can’t type fast enough sometimes to keep up with the thought flow. It’s actually been a joy to write this novel. At this point 12 days into this nano I have written more than I did in all of November last year or the year before.

Section for today:
Nicholas smiled. “Our parents had that little party when I left, she was there. I hadn’t seen her since she was all legs and teeth at Stonecroft. We wrote the whole time I was gone. And I married her quietly after Normandy.”
“A big step from pen pal to marriage.”
Nicholas got up and poured himself a new drink. He took a long swallow before he answered. “I lost so many mates on that day. You know what I am talking about.”
Character of the day: Sir Nicholas Leighton
