total writing geek post, feel free to ignore

Ok, this has been a happy-making writing day. Granted, this is really more like 3 days worth of work, so it's not all that impressive in sheer output, but after transcribing and editing and everything the handwritten stuff, I ended up with about 5200 words of new material, which puts me solidly over the 80K mark. I also had one of those horrified moments of realization where 355 pages meant "only another 145 to go, OMG, am I going to get all the rest of the book to fit *into* that?", which is always a good sign. I still think I've got about 8 chapters left, and with my average chapter length that'll give me about 20 pages of leeway to go back and do edits and revisions on. That's just about perfect.

I actually have a clear idea on what I'm going to do with the revisions (not that it'll make it easy, but at least I know what my *goal* with them is), so that's great. I've got a paragraph of notes on how to finish up this chapter I'm on now, and the rest of it, at this point, should start falling like a, er, well, House of Cards, as it were. Current goal is to hit 400 pages by end-of-day Sunday, which, if I accomplish, will put me sufficiently on track to be .done. by the 15th, even with a visitor next week and the possibility of a con next weekend. I can do a hundred pages and revisions standing on my head.

Right. Gonna go have dinner, watch a movie, and walk the dog. Shopping tomorrow.
