NaNoWriMo Day 3 -- 859 / 9000 (9.5%)

The NaNoWriMo website says my writing speed has doubled to... Tada! 2 words per minute! :-)

Dyma Ni'n Dod (Here We Come)
859 / 9000 (9.5%)

Translated snippet:

   "Right!" Enid clapped her hands. "In an emergency, the best thing is a cuppa. Tea or coffee, Heather?"
   Enid hurried around and, in five minutes, she put the kettle on, found the tea bags - she ignored the fancy tea in the cupboard and chose Paned Cymreig[*]. Soon, she placed a mug of hot tea into Heather's hands.
   After the business of making a cuppa, there was an awkward silence. Enid stared at the old clock on the oak dresser. "When did you call the police?"
   "About twenty minutes ago," Gareth replied while looking at his phone. "Where are they? I'm worried about the body. I don't want children to see it on the way to school but I don't want to move the body either, in case there is forensic evidence."

[*]Literally "Welsh Cuppa" a tea blended specially for Welsh tastes and Welsh water.
