I did finish NaNoWriMo last Thursday, and I did make the 50,000 words. Hooray!
As always happens, once NaNo is over, I take a few days away from my novel to catch up with the rest of my life–mopping floors, playing with rugrats, working!
Last night I took the novel up again and added a new character, Constance, who has two children and works in a day care. I’ll post another scene soon. Stella has begun to flashback and relate her loss ten years ago. It’s very tough, enough that I really want it to settle before I can read it again myself. Also in this chapter she will reveal the secret why they could never adopt.

I can’t wait to read it…..the scene and the book. Any idea how long it takes for a novel to get published and hit the shelves?
Congratulations on the NaNoWriMo thing! Will check back for the next exerpt…
Congratulations on the 50,000 words–that’s a lot! I can’t imagine how you do this, Deanna. How do you write about others’ grief without getting caught up in it yourself? That’s why I had to take a break from the m/c brd.
I am very anxious to read Constance’s story. As a kinderarten teacher, I can relate to the overwhelming emotions working with children can bring.
Congratulations on your progess!
