    Last Line of the Day - NaNo 2017

    Sorry, guys, I totally forgot one of the usual NaNo threads. Sometimes it's fun to share that last line you wrote before you gave up for the day. If you happen to know all 12 that came before day, go for it, but for me I can only start here.

    Day 12: "I would've. If you'd tied yourself to me instead."

    "I'm a failure," Jack cried, covering his face with his hands. "Father Frost will disown me. I'll be replaced by my sister, Jill. Snow will be pink this year!"

    Day 13: His Eeyore voice doesn't work on me anymore because it so often is faked when he's pretending to be sick.

    Day 13: Double damn! She’d said nothing about donkeys or other riding creatures.

    Day 13: Exactly. I’m still used to living here, in a way, and with my family still here, I’m probably pretty settled for the time being.
    I still poop rainbows.

    I won't steal any of your ideas. I have enough of my own I'm not using.

    They were also lucky to find a needle. Thread they had to take from the hem of Gemma’s dress.

    Although he would never be robust and would always walk with a limp, he was nearly as tall as Robert-Colin now, and far more clever at his studies than the prince.
