28,000 words down. I've been letting my three oldest kids read each chapter as I finish, and it really keeps me working. I try to write six days a week, while my fifth takes his afternoon nap. I gave my kids Chapter Thirteen this morning. My oldest daughter just came in the room, waving the pages wildly and shouting about how dare I make things so difficult for certain characters, and whether I had quite lost my mind. She finally threw them at me and stomped out of the room in a way that would have made Anne of Green Gables proud.
I'll take that as a sign that she is drawn in on an emotional level as a reader. Poor kid. She'll be all grown-up someday, talking about how her writer mother tortured them by giving them one chapter at a time...
