Before I Wither Of Exhaustion

I can barely type properly, and I apologise if there a* are typos in her* here that I didn't manage to fix (I've already fixed four... make that five). Six, I just noticed I had spelt 'apologise' incorrectly.

I have officially written 2354 words of my NaNo novel. I need to write just under another 1000 today to reach the target of 3334. It's going well despite the wonky typing. Though I'm not really sure if I have another 1000 words in me quite yet... maybe I should make some pikelets?

I drew pictures.


This is Dimitria. She is three inches tall (name comes from the word "diminish" hehe) and is the main character in the story. She is a Gendle (which explains the big ears), and lives in a land known as Gendlewune where no one ever worries.

(I've already fixed up another dozen or so typos.)

This is a 'cover' (haha, getting ahead of myself much?).



When I have time (which I don't think is going to be until Friday) I'm going to play around in GIMP (free!) to edit (and maybe colour?) these pictures.

Unless my brain is a totally frazzled mess by then, in which case I'll probably be watching The Sound of Music and/or rocking back and forth while muttering incoherently about Gendles, big ears and double crossings.

*And oh my, just noticed two typos in the first paragraph but can't be bothered fixing them. Enjoy.
No, I should fix them (I'll do the strikeout thing!). Otherwise my husband will get home and start telling me about them write right away.
