Mermaid moments. I got distracted by shiny things.
I received edits for another story and let them marinate in my mind (I'm so excited about these edits I could dance a jig but then I'd have to kill any witnesses lol!!!). I got into the holiday spirit and even into some football spirit as I watched my fantasy football roster work their magic on Thanksgiving day (go team Super Foo!). I ate lots of turkey and enjoyed good company in more excess than is normal for me (YAY for the brief social butterfly!).
I did not reach the word count goal, but I've enjoyed the beauty that goes along with the process of birthing a novel. I flirted with my characters, got to know them pretty well, at least enough to trust them to tell their story through me.

I. Had. Fun. A bit of insanity during the early days but fun nonetheless.
I've accepted my defeat...learned from it as well. What is your progress?
