NaNoWriMo Day 4: An Example of the Common Filler

It's already day four of NaNoWriMo and the bookkeeper has written 6,932 words.

Today Bookkeeper thought she'd share this with ya'll:

She usually doesn't save the fortunes she gets from cookies, but she made an exception for this one.

As you should know by now, Bookkeeper is writing this year's NaNo by hand. Today she felt some nostalgia for the years she typed her stories up on the computer and she decided to recreate the typing experience by editing a page with colored pencils:

Yet another reason to hand write your novel, no digital editor underlining your words and sentence fragments! So far, Bookkeeper is loving handwriting her novel.

What she's not loving is the fact that the side of her hand turns silver after she writes with a pencil.

Here's a word of advice for everyone doing NaNo (not just the hand writers):

The bookkeeper knows this from experience, having jumped several inches when she heard the floor creak last night.

Bookkeeper tried drawing the guy with the mustache again.

He still doesn't look right. *sigh* When will Bookkeeper give up trying to draw this guy?

But as long as we're on the subject of characters, here's a picture of Hildegard:

Hildegard is referring to the whole 51 word paragraph describing the sound of a door slamming. Maybe if Bookkeeper didn't write so much filler, she'd actually get some plot done (Hildegard hasn't even appeared in the story yet)!
