I still have 26 pages to go of my first edit, but....I just signed up for this year's National Novel Writing Month.
I don't expcet to reach 50,000 words, because I have a lot of research to do, the young adult story takes place in France, long ago. Long ago meaning I am not yet fully decided on the time period. So I am not planning on doing the mad dash I did last year (hey but I did reach 50,000 words because of it!). So why did I sign up? I think doing so will help me focus my energy on this new project, keep me moving forward, and at a pace greater than I would do on my own.

so I better get back to finishing my edit of Echo, Fountain of Swans begins the day after tomorrow.

by the bye,

I didn't know that CPR's chest compressions do not restart the heart. Their function is to keep blood pumping through the heart, thus flowing through the body, so that oxygen can reach the brain and other organs keeping them and tissues alive, until the heart can be given the energy shock (defibrillation) that will (hopefully) restart it beating.

Thanks Paul!

Trying to keep up with you (and Bonnie too), is what kept me going last year.
