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.

You know, it's so immensely encouraging to read way back through your older entries, about you working through the steps of putting words down and revising and all of it, when I'm in the middle of reading them. Finished book! Published book! Awesome book! But here's the real person who wrote them, and look, she had to do the work to write them, and she did it, and look! real book! awesome book! several of them, actually! It's the most clear connection I've ever had in my thoughts of "here is the process, and the people who do it are actual people," and somehow making the connection is absolutely the most motivating thing to hit me in... a couple of years, maybe, actually. Certainly it's pulling me out of a fairly major slump. It's wonderful and exciting, and Pretty Darned Cool. :) I've read agent blogs and other author blogs before, but somehow it just never really hit me like this. Kind of awesome. :)

Wow. I'm terribly pleased to hear that. I'm glad it's helpful! :)
