NaNoWriMo 2012 – Day 3
NaNo 2012 Day 3
Word Goal: 5,001/50,000
Actual word count: 7,654
What happened today: Never again will we have two 5-hour write-ins within a 24 hour period. Those were the hardest 4000 words I ever wrote. I’m still exhausted, and I’m so glad that DST ended last night, because I NEEDED that extra hour of sleep.
There is one item in the basket that fascinates me, though. It fits almost perfectly in the palm of my hand, with a hard, brittle coating, and is brown with dark speckles. I would call it oval in shape except that one end is slightly narrower than the other, and a little more pointed.
I know the shape. I remember hunting for bird’s nests in the forest when I was a child, but the treasures we found in them were much smaller than this one that I’m holding in my hand.
Awed, I look back up at Taphim, and the look on his face as he watches me is surely a reflection of my own.
“Is this an egg?” I can’t keep the disbelief out of my voice.
