Thus it begins.

Camp NaNoWriMo started today. I have 3,286 words already! Of course.... 1,800 of those words were written last December so.... Yeah. I didn't exactly start at 0 but I figure that's alright.
My novel is, as I've said before, the third in my spy series, though it is written second.
It's working title is Partners in (Solving) Crime.
Here is the synopsis:

When the Big Boss is kidnapped, Daniel and Varina decide to try find him - without orders! Their search takes them from New York City to Seattle where they find out that the Big Boss might not need as much rescuing as they had originally thought.

Now I'm sitting in the chair watching Mulan ("Dishonor on you! Dishonor of your cow!") and trying to do an eleven-strand braid in Josefina's hair. So far it is an eight-strand braid.... I'll finish it real quick and post a picture.


I like this braid. It's kind of complicated... But it was fun (enough). I didn't have to start over very much, which is good.
This is how you do it:
You separate the hair into three sections. One big section in the middle and two little sections on the sides of the head. Then you do a five-strand braid with the middle section. Then, with one of the side sections, you start doing a regular braid, but then you intertwine it with the five-strand. You do that with the other side as well... Then you have an eleven-strand braid! It really isn't as hard as it sounds.
Now I'm going to try french braid Linda's hair... I can do eleven-strand braids, but not french braids!

Live long and prosper!


  1. Ooh, that braid is very pretty! Unfortunately, I have no skills in such things xD Great job!

  2. Besides writing books, you could also work in a hair designing place. That is a neat braid!
