NaNo, Day 2

Yes, I skipped Day One.

Because I spent the day re-reading The Scarlet Pimpernel.


I forgot how much I love the book.   It's my equivalent of Belle's favorite book in Beauty and the Beast: "Far off places, daring swordfights, magic spells, a prince in disguise!"   The only thing The Scarlet Pimpernel lacks is magic spells - although the snuff Sir Percy offers to Chauvelin at the Chat Gris might qualify.  And the dreamy delicious romance between Percy and Marguerite!  I usually hate "hero and heroine are kept apart thanks to Big Misunderstanding" plots, but who can't sympathize with either of them?   I dove right in.

And then I found the sequels online and downloaded them. 

So, yeah, yesterday was not productive.

But today, I'm up to 1711 words.

Much of it written, I must confess, with The Scarlet Pimpernel Broadway cast album playing in the background.
