Current NaNo word count: 29,441
So, today, the word count is coming in pretty smoothly. I think I may have found a way to preserve my modern MC-is-getting-a-fortune storyline and in 1894, Victoria is about to leave home and become an actress.
In reading news, I just started Drums of Autumn, book 4 in the Outlander series.
I think my characters are beginning to click for me. Cast in point, today’s Cool (Or Just Plain Weird or Creepy) Thing About the Victorian Era.

In 1894, Victoria is recounting some family history (which, of course, is also part of Nicole’s family history). Her grandfather was the Earl of Malden and when he died and her uncle became the next Earl, a photographer came before the funeral to photograph the dead Earl.
I read about this somewhere not long ago and since it was regurgitated into my story, here are some…interesting photos.
