Day 10 of NaNoWriMo... and a sick little girl

  Well, this weekend was busy.  Rilla came off the bus with a very high fever.  She was and is still sick all weekend.  Her fever finally broke on Monday morning or late Sunday, can't remember right now :)  but i was very thankful indeed!

  It was a couple nights of no sleep, but i did get some writing in.  I'm just about 400 words short of 20,000!!!  I can't believe i made it to 1,000 let alone 20,000!!  I'm very pleased! oh yeah!!  I'm really loving how the story is falling into place :) 

  I've been finding it hard the past couple of days to write, as my hand is not playing fair with me.  That ganglion cyst has come back with a vengeance.  It's making my hand all tingly, so this afternoon, i thought up an idea ;) I wrapped up my lower arm inside my heating pad :)  and it helped! Tingling stopped!  I also put on those magnetic bracelets.  

  I'm so used to writing on paper... this writing on the computer is so hard on the wrists.  

  Just a short note to let you know how i'm doing and to remind myself too in case i forget lol  ... but i must run along and finish getting caught up as i lost yesterday.

  oh yes! our Christmas tree!  i almost forgot, it's up now :) started it last night and finished it when emily and avery got home from school.  it looks very pretty, i'll take a picture soon, did some different ideas with it that i liked :) 

  Have a great evening everyone!

Day 4 of NaNoWriMo... i'm still in it :)

Today I introduced a new character.  A man.  He didn't want to cooperate.  He kept changing his idea of what he wanted to be like haha ... but finally he liked what he was and I wrote.  and wrote... and wrote... now, i'm a mom with 4 kids and life gets in the way.  Painting, clothes, yes, and even food ;) but i'm at 1800 words for today, so far and don't want to stop yet ;)

I really should be working on Rilla's Ramblings #3 but haven't been able to do that for a few days.  I will though, once the painting is finished :)  but then it's Christmas decorating... but that'll only take a few days :)  but then there's Christmas baking, and shopping for Christmas presents and letters... and and ... it'll all fall in place... no matter how busy it gets... it'll all get finished :)

my count you ask?
so far i've written... 7629 words!!!  a total record for me!! I'm THAT thrilled!! I so can't believe I'm writing a novel... didn't think i could do it, but I'm loving it and so loving how the story is going.

Rilla is LOVING Kindergarten!! She's even sounding out words now... every single words she sees!! :) it's the cutest thing :) My friend made a wallpaper of Rilla for book 2... no title yet for it... must do that too.  Here is the wallpaper... thanks so much Strawberry!! You ARE awesome :) Have a great evening everyone :)
