A spiffy surprise for my main character — 1263 words and 6832 total

Today was a day for a bit of family history for my main character. It follows a big adventure scene, and reveals to my MC stuff she did not know about her grandmother — big stuff that ties into not just her present but to her past all the way back when she was in fifth grade.

The writing was fun — and I actually got almost a third more words than I get to count, because I spent some of the time doing essential worldbuilding that will let me, in upcoming novels (and probably retrofitted into the earlier ones during revision) — work in some very cool shit about Grandma.

Grandma was much, much cooler than my protagonist ever realized — and she always thought the old lady was awesome.
