NaNoWriMo Update!

I wrapped up Chapter 12 this morning - left the two main characters in a certain amount of peril (and it's just going to get more perilous before it's over). I estimate there are three more chapters left. I'm cruising along at better than the 1/2 a chapter a day pace I needed to finish all 15 chapters in 30 days. We'll see what sort of impact Thanksgiving has...

BTW, the illustrated version of the original Boomer Sisters book is coming out soon too, probably right around the same time as this second book is finished. So... if you've got elementary school kids on your Christmas list, I know of two books you could pick up, coming soon!

Thanks! Hard to believe!

My wife asked how I felt about the end approaching. I said I will be happy when it's over, not because NaNoWriMo is a drag (it isn't), but because the story will be complete... and I can't wait to see how it ends!

Of course, I'm also looking forward to getting a bit more sleep.

Dan, you blow me away. I want to be just like you when I grow up.

Thanks! It's a lot of fun - and I hope to write a little more tomorrow (taking today off).
