Thanks to Kristen’s prompting, last year Eldest participated in the Young Writer’s Program of the National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). She didn’t quite get done as we were just getting settled into our new place, but she gave it a valiant effort. She has been scribbling notes down, writing on google docs and generally developing this story – which she has not shown to the parents who brought her into this world – for about six months now. Well . . . she saw me working with my MacSpeech Dictate and her typing problems were solved*. Here she is adding to her novel. She thinks this is just too cool.
* Don’t worry, she will still work on proper typing, but at this point her mind is moving far faster than her fingers can.
