I'm on my way out the door to pick up oldest from night class, but wanted to post before I left cause I am so going to sleep when I get home.

Kitty bite hurts and is bruised now. I get paid tomorrow, so I plan to visit the doctor at some point. Just in case. The strange thing is that I don't think I see any puncture wounds, which is what bites usually are. Just a HUGE gash...maybe two. It's hard to tell with the bruise. It still bleeds, too. I don't dare touch it.

Anyway, not so many words tonight cause I'm rather tired.

But, I do have some, so here they are...

Long weeks are hard after short ones, aren't they?

But, only four weeks to go until four days off for Christmas. Woo-hoo!

And then three days off for New Year.

Why, yes, I am counting. What ever gave you that idea?

I'm tired. Very tired.

And, getting ready to go to bed.

Good night, LJ! Sleep tight. And don't let the beddy bugs bite.

And, yes, I did continue NaNo by starting another novel. After all, there are still a couple of days left.

I'll keep up my original NaNo novel word count, too, until then.

This is the first time I have finished an entire novel in one month, and I'm sooooo proud of myself.

I've written over 100,000 words in NaNo before. Did that last year. But I didn't finish the novel until January of this year because of some real life problems.

This time, I set out what I intended to do. I finished the entire novel in one month.

The best part? It's pretty lean. I'll need to flesh out a few areas, I think. Add a little more description and make sure the emotions I want are in place.

Only a couple of dead-end scenes to take out. They were experiments and I'll use them else-where. But, they're probably not even a page worth of writing.

I have a plot twist I might put in upon rewriting, but haven't made a definite decision on that yet.

Might go with the plot the way it is and just see if anything new evolves on rewrite.

This will probably be the easiest edit/revise I've had.

I had days when I let my insecurities get the best of me, but over-all, this is probably the cleanest novel I've written.

I resisted the urge to pad just to hit NaNo word counts. I even cut out stuff that I knew I'd cut out on rewrite anyway. I am really serious about this novel and did NOT want to leave myself stuck with clutter when I was done.

So...

Broken Mirrors is finished. I don't have time to post my meters and such this morning, but I'll do that when I get home from work.

I think I'll start on the next novel in the series since I still have four NaNo days left. :)

Then I have to get to work on the screenplays.

No rest.

Today was a good day.

Wrote some, cleaned some, cooked some, watched movies on cable with youngest son, watched him beat a main bad guy on a video game.

We had our Thanksgiving duck, which finally thawed, tonight for dinner. It was excellent with stuffing and mashed potatoes. Yummy.

Thoughts on novel tomorrow. I'm too tired tonight.
