Yesterday afternoon, I reached “The End” in my NaNoWriMo novel. This very rough draft requires extensive revision, including incisive surgery.

Tentatively titled Recipe for Disaster, the novel is the first of four in a juvenile fiction series. As Emily celebrates her twelfth birthday, she faces distressing emotional turmoil and troubling relationship changes. Her responses include anxiety and humor, with her favorite remedies containing copious amounts of chocolate and texting.
