“You learn something every day if you pay attention.” – Ray LeBlond
Well, so much for that personal challenge. I buckled down and finished what I’m calling the Horrible Harlequin for NaNoWriMo. 50,000 words in 21 days. I’ve potentially gotten that out of my system. Of course I introduced several characters that are crying out for their own book, and I’m not sure if I can wait until next November to write about them.
In the meantime, I missed a co-workers birthday because I wasn’t paying attention. Lovely. Just for that, she gets a purple and gray bamboo scarf. Bambu 7 in lavender and chrome I think. I sett it at too tight of an epi – 24epi instead of 20epi – because it was a twill. And because I wasn’t paying attention. It is a little stiffer than I’d like, even after throwing it in the dryer. I’ll hope that it softens up with use.
