I'm still at the 10k mark, but I really want to have this novel finished by the new year. I've edited but haven't written any new novel-length works. Ending the year without at least completing one new novel would be very upsetting. I think I might even do my own December mini challenge.
Over the month of November, one thing I did do was collect a ton of images that reminded me of New York, specifically Brooklyn. I really wish I could share some of those, but I don't want to take any chances posting more images that aren't my own. That said, I'll leave you with an excerpt instead.
Congrats to those of you who finished NaNo. You guys rock my socks off.
From Just Another Moonlit Night:
Finn had neck length blond hair, which he always wore down. His favorite pair of shoes were these old Birkenstocks his mother had given him several birthdays ago. When he wasn't painting, or spending time with me, he worked from home as a web developer. He was good at anything that required the use of his hands.
On Saturday mornings we’d listen to Bob Marley’s “We’re Jammin” from a radio we found on sale for only fifteen bucks. I’d put on the tea kettle, fill my cup with two spoonfuls of sugar, and when the tea was all made I’d sit on the couch we’d found on a sidewalk one afternoon and watch Finn through the open door of his studio, slashing away at canvases. I’d gotten prettier at eighteen. My braces had come off. I kept my brunette strands cut short at my ears and now had a taste for hand-me-down dresses.
Happy writing and reading!
