Hey, I’m doing really well: I got through more than 200 pages of AAs before the Horrible Sleepies attacked me. These are not bad AAs, though I’ve had this copyeditor before and she seems to have some sort of objection to hyphens. For some reason she took the hyphen out of “extra-long” (which is to say she made it “extralong”, not “extra long”), for example, and other similar things. However, that compared to the last one is…there’s no comparison. o.o

I’ve no doubt made the Horrible Sleepies worse by doing laundry, which heats up the house like there’s no tomorrow. The obvious solution is escaping the house to do the last 200 pages of the manuscript, but somebody from the rental agency is supposed to be stopping by to inspect the place today, and I strongly dislike having people come into my house while I’m not in it.

Arright. The dryer’s stopped, anyway, so it’s cooled off a bit in here. Back on my head.

eta, several hours later: the AAs are all done but for the typing in. yay! now I shall make cookies, and when the cookies are done, I shall type all dem lil’ AAs in and get the book turned in TODAY. YAY!

and done.

The AAs for HANDS OF FLAME are turned in. That book is officially put to bed. Look for it on the shelves in September 2008….

I have a prologue left to write and a spell-check to run, and then I’m done. That’s for tomorrow; tonight I’m going to go eat dinner and watch some House.
