One of the most exciting things about doing NaNoWriMo this year was that I got my Mother to do it as well. That’s right, my 71 year-old mother wrote a novel as well. By hand. (It must be hereditary.)
While she did finish the book, it was a little less than 50,000 words. Although I think it was about 20,000 words more than she ever believed it would be.
I am busy reading it at the moment, and it make some interesting reading. It is a family history, interspersed with stories about cats. 🙂
My sister Moonblue and I are planning to edit it into a final form, and try and have it printed. I am sure we can persuade a few family members to buy a copy.
Now all I need is a snappy title.
