Chapter 25 is completed and up! It’s getting harder for Valerie to keep her secret. Here’s the link: https://my.w.tt/EpZKIW2by3

Happy New Year — after a little holiday break and family time, I’m back in the swing of writing “The Piano Upstairs.” Valerie and her sister Clara are struggling to cope with new information regarding their mother’s death. Chapter 23 is up: https://my.w.tt/Kx8Y4SetU2

NaNoWriMo is a thing of the past, but I’m delighted to be back to work on “The Piano Upstairs” after a wonderful Thanksgiving/anniversary break. I finished Chapter 19 today — here’s the link: https://my.w.tt/tCSw8TRE61

Here’s Chapter 18 — https://my.w.tt/F9xbn4sFW1
          
          ...and a Thanksgiving update: In order to reach 50,000 words by the end of the month, I’d have to sacrifice time with my husband and daughter while we’re all together for the Thanksgiving holiday. I’ve gotten everything I wanted from National Novel Writing Month this year: A strong start on a novel I love and a renewed commitment to my daily writing practice.
          
          So expect more updates soon on “The Piano Upstairs” (I might even write a chapter or two this week) but I’ll be prioritizing family bonding time over writing like a maniac and posting daily. I hope you all have a lovely, peaceful holiday if you’re celebrating — and happy #nanowrimo if you’re writing!
