Quote-worthy snippet/Interesting words used: Too involved to post here, but I was amused to note today that anecdotes mentioned by both ann1962 and ladystarlightsj have found their way into my novel. So be careful what you say, flist: you, too, may be "absorbed."

nano notes: I've reached that point in the month where I have enough material and its random enough to wonder, "Is this going anywhere? And if it is, is it going somewhere that I'll like?" It's time to step back and do some big-picture stuff, even if it means the word count slips for a couple days, 'cause there's a morale factor at stake.

I'm trying to find your entries where you talked about her, did you tag them in anyway??

No tagging on her
I think it was Spring '08. I'm going through those entries now. Love the OT one I just found.

Found this post, but I've already named her Sewer girl. I started checking in March, so naming her must predate that month. Hmmm.

Did she have a real name mentioned in your LJ?

No. I checked my ljbooks for 2006, 08, and 09 and she isn't mentioned. So it must be 08. And I can't find my 08 ljbook either. Must be on the other computer.

So this was an acquaintance of your daughter's that she met in '08?

They've known each other since the start of middle school. Off and on acquaintances for a few years, and now friends. There was a slow down after the sewer exploring, and me calling her mom, but an upswing now during high school. She doesn't really explore sewers anymore. Thank god!
