Baby Dust–I have not forsaken thee!

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.

It’s exciting!

  1. 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?

  2. 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.

  3. 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!
