What happened today: My writing time was cut short today because I had pumpkin that had to be cooked down.  Incidentally, a large jack-o-lantern pumpkin makes about 35 cups of puree and cubed pumpkin.  Also, in our NaNo regional chatroom tonight, the bot gave me three pretty amazing things – a six-figure book deal, a desk with all nuclear launch codes, and a hand knit blanket.  Too bad none of it was real.

100 Word Excerpt: (or today, 102 words)

Ehi didn’t know if it was because their relationship was so new, or because she’d never had a true relationship before, but she felt like there was never enough time for them to be together.

It was late morning, well after the second sunrise, when she finally escaped from her mother and handmaid.  They had been extremely interested in prying into her life today, and so she did everything she could to get out of there as quickly as possible.  She wore the lace veil again.

Erlkys was anxious today.  His responsibilities were growing, both with his job, and within Is Ryg.
