NaNo Day Twenty-Eight

Word count: 32,381 as of last night
Song of the day: probably "Half a Heart" by One Direction

Happy Thanksgiving to all my American readers!  It's going to be very quiet at my house - just my parents and me.  I made pumpkin pie croissants yesterday, so we'll eat them for breakfast today.

I'm not really going to talk about National Novel Writing Month today, even though that is something I am VERY thankful for.  Instead, last Friday in writing club, my group finished about 20 minutes early.  We did pass-the-poem (that's where you write one line, then pass it onto the next person who writes one line, and so on until it reaches the original person again).  Our teacher assigned us Thanksgiving as the topic and we decided to make them hashtag poems (you'll see what those are below).  I asked if I could share them with you, and here they are. :)
