NaNoWriMo Progress and Setbacks

I’m 11 days into National Novel Writing Month and have finished two chapters of the book. I am considerably behind at this point, having left town for the funeral and trying to catch up on photo shoots.

I have, however, written the section where we introduce the woman who runs the Pregnancy Loss Support Group, Stella.

Stella is big, loud, Jewish, opinionated, and funny. She has lost two babies, gone through six rounds of IVF, and at 44, has finally decided cats will be her only kids. Later in the book you will learn the devastating reason why she and her husband Dane can never adopt. When things get far too serious in the book, Stella will step up and remember that we can laugh at anything. We just need some perspective and to fill what we do have in our life with love and joy.

  1. I’m glad you decided to include some humor in the book. I think it would be too hard to read if it were always about how tough miscarriage is and how hard it is to try again afterward. Stella sounds just like my kind of gal, someone I’d really like to go to the mall with or maybe to see a movie.
