NaNoWriMo Update ~ Day 9

Didn’t do so well today. Just couldn’t concentrate. We got another foot of snow last night. Ugh. It’s still snowing. Have too many things on my mind today and it showed.

Only wrote 1407 words today for a total of 16035. Not terrible but not good. But I’m still projected to finish Nov. 28th! So at least I am on track. Tomorrow will be better I hope.

Readers are encouraged to comment as well.  A thank you  to Rochelle Wisoff-Fields for hosting and for  this weeks picture.

Here is my story:


Teri looked at the frosted window pane with her artist’s eye. To be able to  take what mother nature provided for a muse this cold winter day and paint it on canvas would prove to be challenging. Challenges she was not afraid of. She looked again at each unique ice crystal upon the window and smiled. To Teri it was like looking at each individual she knew. So different yet so wonderful in each their own way. As she was also. She picked her paintbrush up with her toes and delicately dipped it in the paint and then lightly touched the canvas.
