But that's not what I'm working on right now. (Well, it has been for the last two hours, while debela and I geeked about it, but that's different from working.) I got 4200 words done on HoC and broke 300 pages, though I haven't hit 75K in actual wordcount yet. Hopefully tomorrow. Still, I'm now at the point where I have a perceptible number of things to accomplish: masquerade, sex, betrayal, death, explosions, estrangement.
And, right on cue, I find myself wondering both whether I have enough story to make it to the end of the book, and how I'm going to get all that story into the remaining pages I have left. :) The nice thing is that for the first time I'm feeling actively enthusiastic about working on this book...which is probably because I have to stop for several days in order to have visitors and do the line edits on PHOENIX. I hope I don't lose the enthusiasm. Losing momentum is bad, and easy to do. I'm a little nervous about the next several days.
ARGH. It's Friday and I've missed the farmer's market AGAIN. I *cannot* remember that it's FRIDAY. ARGH!
