Done Did It
For the second time ever: I completed nano. Thank you Lea so much for your constant encouragement and the fun.
November turned out to be one of the hardest months ever for my family. My SIL ended up in the hospital for three weeks because the chemo killed her white blood count so she couldn't fight infection, she got e-coli growing in her blood and she was running a fever. Plus something was going on with her liver.
She's home now and still has to do more chemo. So we've all been miserable. I've been a cleaning, cooking, laundering maniac and if it wasn't for nano I probably would have fallen apart. But having the word count to focus on and letting my story grow organically has been an amazing journey for me.
I have a very very rough first draft that has maybe less than half of it usable but the story grew, the characters changed and I love what I have to work with now.
And I finished nano. Life is nothing if not a roller coaster.
