20,000 Words!

I'm now over 2/5 through my goal of 50,000 words in my novel for November. Only slightly behind schedule, too. Here is the section which put me over the 20k milestone:

“It’s a wonderful day,” said Íkmí. “Is it not?”

Her two sisters were too busy combing their hair to reply.

Íkmí did not mind, for she was enjoying the warmth of Hahumí upon her skin from head to toe. The river water glistened upon her body, sparkling like a thousand jewels. Íkmí smiled tranquilly as the sun embraced her.

“Eeek!” shouted her sisters. “A snake!”
