*splat*  
Somewhere around 900 words this morning I caught a cold, and by 1500 words I had to take some cold medicine, which has resulted in a very floaty head. I can't tell if it's now wearing off, causing my head to be newly floaty, or ... that's probably it, but man. Woogh.

Uh. Man. Having a hard time focusing. Took about 3 hours to get the first thousand words this morning, which was just awful. I seriously wanted to give up and just crawl into bed, which would have been extremely counterproductive. But now I think (I hope and pray) I've gotten through the sloggy bit and can charge on. Ended up with 5100 words after it all, so...well, thank God. :) Oh, and I hit 475 pages. *tired laugh* Yesterday shadowhwk said she could take a look at the part I was stuck at, if I wanted, and I was like, "Oh god no, it's already 450 pages long, that's too much to ask anybody to slog though," and she went, "!" and said, "I was thinking of the beginning part where you're having trouble," but sadly, I was starting at page 322, which would require a lot of slogging to get to. :)

I checked today. I do in fact, as I believed, use the left shift key almost exclusively. I couldn't find anything I used the right one for in the several sentences I Typed Like This To See Which Shift Key I Used While Making Up Words Like Zuggaboo To Check Letters I Don't Use That Much Because I Couldn't Think of Alpha Beta Carrot or whatever it is. :) But to make up for it, I only hit the spacebar with my right thumb. :)

wow. teh tired, teh tired.

Ted and I finished watching season 1 of Tru Calling, and are pre-emptively disappointed it got cancelled in season 2, because the season finale pretty much rocked, and set up a great antagonistic dynamic for Tru. We really enjoyed it. And we bought season 5 Smallville and accidentally watched the entire first DVD last night. Last night? Night before? Night before, I think. Ted worked last night. The days, they are blurring.

ok, i got nothin' else. :)

475 pages?! That's, like... 125,000 words for a novel! Is this all for one book or are you writing for a series?

It's pushing 125K right now, yeah, and it'll probably be close to 150K when it's done. It's the first book in a series.
