Lighten Up!

I had to lighten up a little after the intense past two chapters of LNDtH. So today's chapter focuses on basketball and the slightly weird and quirky new girl, Nicolette. I solemnly promise, no tears today.

On a side note, I will mention that the first draft of "Blackfeather", the sequel to "Redtail", is going well. In terms of NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) it is already a winner being over 50,000 words. I'm estimating that it still has another 30,000 to go. Unlike the long-running serials "Model Student" and "Living Next Door to Heaven", "Blackfeather" is a novel that will have a finite number of chapters (about 20-22, I think) and will post in a relatively short period of time with a chapter a day or every other day. Don't expect it until late February or March. It will go through a massive rewrite once I get the first draft finished and then through two or three editorial passes as well. I'm pleased with where it is now, but it could be someplace completely different by March!

Greetings from lovely and cold Ruidoso, NM!
