This morning, I am thankful to be alone in a quiet house with a snoozy cat, a roasting pumpkin, and the 100,000 words of text that make up the first draft of my novel. I finished the first draft a week ago and only managed to wait two days before beginning the rewrite. I had thought that once I finished the first draft I'd finally be able to rest... but there is still much work to be done!
Today, Brett is working in C's classroom and D is staying with a friend, and so I work, adjusting plot and dialogue and words until this massive unwieldy thing becomes something worth reading!
Wishing everyone a very happy Thanksgiving!
