Camp NaNoWriMo

Well, I still have 3 chapters to complete of Uncertain Heirs, so I'm participating in Camp NaNo to finish those. I'm taking Neil Gaiman's and Joss Whedon's advice -- I'm finishing what I write.

And because I love you guys so much, I'm going to let you see a snippet of dialog. Just a snippet, of course. ;)

But I do want to wish everyone good luck, should they be undertaking the Camp NaNo challenge!

"Ja – yes. Theomark. He is our Mutter's Onkel. He visits from Moskva every four years. He's made study of it, so he would know the most about totems and Geistsprecherinnen."
            "I'm sorry, but how do you plural the word?" asked Eleonora.
            "Once more."
            "Again, with feeling."
            "Gesitsprech—you're making fun of me."
            Eleonora batted her lashes. She feigned innocence and smiled pleasantly before saying, "I wouldn't dream of such a thing."
            Dungareth threw his head back and howled with cachinnation.
            Fredderick rolled his eyes. "Have you met my brother Dungareth? He's a pain in my a—"
            "Oh, look now," Dungareth interrupted, pointing to the left window beside Eleonora. "You can see the south wing of Schloss Wolfsh√∂hle."
