Everyday Adventures with Erin: Writing Again!

Hello Out There!

For those of you who are wondering whether I have fallen off the writing bandwagon, I am happy to report, despite not signing up for NaNoWriMo this year, I am industriously writing this month.

My WIP (work in progress) is at nearly 50,000 words. As much as I wanted to get to 50K today, I am excited because a sticky plot point I kept wondering about suddenly became clear! Also, I feel good about continuing some research that I began last spring, on the Crow and Blackfeet Native American tribes.

On another fun note, while scouring the Internet for just the right use of a star sapphire, I realized I couldn’t find what I was looking for, so I would have to make it up myself. I guess that is why we write–to have opportunities to use our imaginations.

But, the best thing about writing today was my youngest, while hanging out in my room for moral support, said, “Mom, it’s like when you were dating Daddy and he always said ‘if’ you get married, but you said ‘when’ you get married. You say ‘if’ you get published, but I say ‘when’ you get published.”

Awww. . . isn’t she sweet?
