Thank you, everybody, for the birthday wishes. :) It was a nice birthday. I got no work done worth mentioning, Ted made a very yummy dinner, and we watched four episodes of season 5 Alias and ate Haagen Dazs ice cream. :)

Now I'm stuck at this computer because I have a 9 pound broken-footed cat on my lap and I'm pinned down by his mighty weight and cuteness. He's doing just fine. Gimping around like a champion.

Ah, he's moved, which means I pretty much have to go to work now. Okay, then. Bye. :)

augh!

850 words short of 100K! Augh!

The thing is that I will Blow Past 100K tomorrow, because the next chapter (and, in fact, 8 pages of the one after it) can be put back in almost wholesale, with minor revisions in the opening part of the next chapter. And my TV show is on in 10 minutes, so I don't have time to get those revisions done before it. Argh!

Hm. It's a two part show. Maybe I'll go back to work between parts 1 and 2 so that I can get past 100K and so that--I think when I'm done with these next two chapters I'll have about 5 chapters left til the end. Irritatingly, those 5 chapters are almost entirely "rewrite it so exactly the same thing happens in a completely different way" chapters, but oh well. There's not a damned thing I can do about it.

Yeah. I think I'll break for the tv show and then go back to work and at least get revisions done on the next 25 or so pages. Which will put me at about 450 pages, too, which would be another nice milestone.

Yeah. Okay. It's a plan.

any dream will do

Well! To my complete astonishment, Lewis the blond kid finally turned it on in the very very last song. Collapse )

In revisions news, I got the next chapter done and broke 100K. I'm pushing 450 pages, and tomorrow ought to break it pretty easily. So. Five more chapters after that, I think, and they all have to be completely totally revised.
