# NaNoWriMo # On Writing

NaNoWriMo 2018 Day 25: Girls' Day for the Win

Daily updates about my experiences doing November's National Novel Writing Challenge.

Day 25
Progress to Date:

Favorite Line(s) Written Today: 
She massaged his scalp faster than usual, but he closed his eyes and smiled. “Feels great. You have a nice touch.”
The words sounded so matter of fact, but there was something beneath the surface. An agenda that went deeper than a guy flirting with the girl whose bike he hit. Something that made her spider sense tingle.

Daily Notes:
One nice thing about weekends off is that I can get a lot done. The way better thing about weekends off, however, is that I get to spend more time with family doing things we enjoy. So while I did log some dutiful writing time, including two group sprints in the evening, I took the rest of the day off so my daughter and I could have an impromptu girls' day. 

Girls' day involved a library trip, holiday snack-tasting, and a cooking lesson in turning leftover turkey into homemade soup. We binged some shows, read a chapter aloud from A Wrinkle in Time, and played with the dog. And last but not least, we're trying to brainstorm a new holiday family tradition. We want something to take the place of the synchronized Christmas light show we attend every year, since they announced it will no longer be operating. Still working on that one.

Chapter Fourteen is still in progress, with plenty of spoilers so I won't go into a lot of detail. I did pull out a "Favorite Line" that doesn't give much away.

Daily Word Count: 2,585 (since last post time.)

Daily Goody Treat:

Treat bag #25: Today's chocolate truffle and a quote card from Pamela Vaull Starr: "Reach high, for stars lie hidden in your soul."

About this year's NaNo, Heat of the Dragon:

For years, Tristan stayed away from his destined mate to protect her from the dragon nature even his native medicine practices can't control. Battling the beast grows harder with each passing day, especially since returning to the town where Jessica is close enough to touch. Her nearness triggers more heat than he can handle, and the spirit of his grandfather warns him that the consequences could be fatal.  Visions of a new threat to Jessica will force him to face the woman he ran from, but how can he save her when he can't tame the fiery dragon lurking inside? 

Book 2 of the Kiss of the Dragon series.
