Day 24

2 AM and I'm still awake, writing a song
If I get it all down on paper, it’s no longer
inside of me, threatening the life they belong to

- Lyrics from “Breathe (2AM),” by Anna Nalick

Prompt of the Day: Someone apologizes, admits he or she was wrong, and/or attempts to make up for a wrong-doing.

Tip of the Day: Cover your turkey with a cheesecloth soaked in butter and white wine, and then with aluminum foil. Lift the foil to baste the bird regularly, but otherwise keep covered until the last half-hour of cooking. Your bird will brown in the last half-hour, but your white meat won't dry out. Related tip: If you can get them, kosher turkeys have been brined before you buy them, so you can skip the messy brining process but still get all the wonderful flavor and moisture.

Wait, you're looking for a *NaNo* tip? This is Thanksgiving week...

I need to go make the mock-mincemeat now.
