Today went really well. Daughter and I once again were in the same room. We love to sit near each other. We stop and ask each other how we are doing. It's great to have such a willing soundboard.
I love that we have this time together. She's growing up too quickly, and she's so smart. I am one proud mother.
We both got ahead in our word count. The hope is that we can take the weekend off and/or have some time off during Thanksgiving. Iris' birthday is the day before Thanksgiving. We often get frazzled around that time so we take school off for at least one week.
Still had enough ideas for the novel today. I am so thankful that the gray cells, as Mr. Hercule Poirot (an Agatha Christie character) says, are still working. Today, I ventured into dialogue. It made my story more fun. I might go back to Day One's work and add more dialogue there, as well.
“Now here this, Jilly Anne. I'm married to the man of my dreams. He loves me. He is with me. If you try to come between us, you will pay for it. Do you hear me?” Caroline said.
I'll try to give an update tomorrow. Thanks for reading!
