Son Number Three spoke his first real word today. He looked up at me when I walked into the room this morning and declared, "Dada." This is the first time he's definitely associated me with the sound and I'm counting it as official.
In other news, I wrote a few hundred words for "The Battle of Raven Kill" this morning. I think I am finding the tone and direction for the story and I am trying to get it completed in time to start submitting by the end of summer. Unfortunately, the market I was aiming for, Flashing Swords e-zine, has run into some difficulty and has suspended operations indefinitely. Hopefully something will open up and it will find a home.
