Wednesday drabble: NaNoWriMo

“Whatcha doing?” Gena bounced to a stop next to her dad’s desk.

He didn’t look up from his laptop. “Writing.”

“Whatcha writing?”

He sighed but still didn’t look up. “I’m working on a novel.”

Her eyes widened. “Are you going to write it all today?”

“No, but I’ll get a good start this month — 50,000 words. It’s NaNoWriMo — National Novel Writing Month.”

“Is that a lot?”

“Enough to start, although I’ll have to keep going. I promise we’ll do something together when November’s over.”

“You say that every year.”

He didn’t answer; he’d gone back to his writing.

In other words, I do apologize for not posting on Monday, but I’ve signed up for the madness yet again (eighth year in a row). I will try to be better about posting.
