Smile for the Novelist - Final NaNoWriMo Checkin

Right now, with 3 days left before the end of NaNoWriMo, I find myself at 46,923 words. 

Tonight, after work, we had an unexpected visit to the walk-in.  Two hours and who knows how much money later, my spouse has a sinus infection with ear involvement and a prescription for antibiotics.

Walk ins are interesting places nowadays.  I am very grateful that we have health insurance, because my spouse would not have been seen without it.

As far as the wait - it was interesting, and if I can find a way to incorporate it into my novel, I will. 

Yes, that is what authors do.  Amuse us? You are in our novel.  Tick us off?  You are in our novel.

Smile!  You are being observed!

(and, by the way, if you send chocolate - my address on request - I will write good things about you)

What is the most interesting, or outrageous, thing you ever experienced, which ended up in something you wrote?


  1. I had a crazy experience in Miami (thanks for commenting on that)! Most of my life found it's way into the pages of my first book. Now that people know how much I like human interest and character-driven pieces, they are probably all going to run like the plague.

    But, like you, I would consider chocolate a lovely bribe for those who want a positive role in one of my books. ;-)

    I'm so glad you did NaNo! You never cease to amaze me (especially since you also blogged every day. My poor blog is feeling so unloved lately!).

    1. Thank you for the kind words, Tia! My life isn't 1/8 as crazy as yours so I think I have more time - although maybe not as much material. I am very happy for the NaNoWriMo experience - I now have a taste (just a taste) of how much work goes into each of those many books that rest on the shelves of our local libraries.
