Grandma used to send me news articles. She would find something in the newspaper that she thought I’d like, she would cut it out, and send it to me. I remember one article was about origami cranes. I like origami. I certainly can’t claim to be an expert on it, but I do like it and she remembered that.
In honor of my grandma, I’m going to do something a little different with my writing for Camp NaNoWriMo. In addition to doing Camp NaNoWriMo this month, I am also doing Kristen Joy’s Kindle-In-30 Challenge which started yesterday. You can use the same thing for both, but the goal of Camp is to write a lot of words and the goal of Kindle-In-30 is to complete a messy first draft, so what I’m doing is working on a second companion story to my Camp book. In this case, that story is about Todd’s nieces meeting their brother. I thought for today I would write a scene were Presley introduces her twin brother, Fletcher, to their grandmother. Their grandmother, Todd’s mother, has been in a coma for a long time and so the introduction would be a bitter sweet kind of thing, but seeing as I am missing my grandma right now, it seems appropriate to give them a bittersweet scene with theirs.
Do you still have your grandparents? If so, what do you like best about them? If not, what do you miss most about them?
