My special surprise? A new blog! This one by a very special girl. She's going to be my main sidekick during NaNoWriMo. After all, she's the main feature of my YWP NaNo book Diary of a Homeschooler: Cassie! I've already started writing a bit about her (shh!), and it feels awesome to have a) a homeschooled character and b) someone who lives in my birth state of V.I.R.G.I.N.I.A! In case you're all interested in reading her blog, here's the link. ;) All right, off to go wait for another half hour. It's kind of agonizing, LOL!
