Happy Birthday, Quinn!

We have a two-year old in the house again! Or, a 14-year old in dog years. Either way you look at it: Uh-oh!

Quinn really enjoyed "opening" his birthday present. We got him a new kitty and he was determined to get the stuffing out.

Within half an hour of getting his toy, this it what it looked like:

Hey! Where'd my arm go?

Done...well, sort of

I reached a milestone tonight. Three weeks late, or 20 years late, depending on how you look at it, I reached the end of my first draft. I wanted to have it done before I started NaNo this month, but I got a little stuck. Thankfully, I have my great critique group who brainstormed me out of that, and I finally got over (or just pushed through) my own hangups about reaching the end.

Now I get guilt-free NaNo-ing for the rest of the month. Well, free from the voices that said "You haven't finished your main WIP yet! You never finish anything! You suck!" As to the other voices, well, I'll deal with them later. For tonight, I'm sort of floating in a weepy sort of way (if you don't cry when it's done, what was the point?). In December, the editing starts, but I'll think about that in a couple weeks.

Now I've got an incredible amount of NaNo-ing to catch up on! Can I just type "the" 45,000 times? I didn't think so.

I am somewhere in this picture. Can you find me????

Here's a hint: Find Dan first.

I know, I'm evil! :)
