Almost There

In for the last shove. I've got less than 6000 words to go and about 25.5 hours left until the cutoff.

Knitters in my novel?

Why yes, there ARE knitters in my novel. But they're getting recruited for surveillance/intelligence work to infiltrate an organization with their clever chatting skills & use special devices hidden inside circular knitting needles.

I'm still working on what the motivation to take this huge risk of becoming spies would be for these knitters (a nice mix of 20-50 yr old women and one 29 yr old gay man). You want to help in a "choose your own adventure" sort of way?

So which of these cliche movie motivators do you think it is?

A) A member of their knitting circle is kidnapped by the bad guys and they must get involved to help save them (just about every kidnap or scary movie ever)
B) The knitters commit some crime for which they will be severely punished if they don't participate (Triple X)
C) Some bad guys are going to destroy the world, steal a nuke, etc., and no one is more qualified than their rag-tag team to stop them. (Armageddon)
D) They are (or are told) they are just the decoys, and have no real danger (but of course they do and save the day) (Spies like us)

It felt so good to have someone I've never met recognize my knitting! How cool is that?

Thanks Katy!

(oh, and our Grrr photo will be up soon on Flickr, I've been a-noveling too much lately to upload)

Kiri Knitting finished

Binding off took ages, but I'm finally done, just 2.5 hours into the start of National Novel Writing Month.
