ytd wordcount: 102K  

It’s March 21st and I have broken 100K for the year (and that with being totally out of writing commission for three weeks because of my stupid hand). I think this is only the second time I’ve racked up that kind of wordcount this early in the year, and I am somewhere between pleased at the number, and despairing over how much is left to do.

Turns out the invasion will be tomorrow. If I do it right it’s going to be a screamingly sexy chapter.

ytd wordcount: 102,200
miles to Minas Tirith: 196.8

Well keep writing because I bought another one of your books last night on a whim. I was after horror or hard sci-fi but none of that is avant-garde anymore and the store had nothing. NOTHING! But I thought, "Ha! I know a good writer and since I'm here..." So, here I am, straying from the Urban Shaman theme and expanding my horizons--and it's because I read your LJ. That teeny percentage you just earned from the sale is due to the Ireland pictures, LOL

Hooray! Thank you! :)

Ah, it's a part 2! Now I have to go out and get the 1st one too. You dirty-tricked me! LOL

Wait, I'm confused. You bought HOUSE OF CARDS? Well, I wasn't trying to be sneaky about it being a part two! :) I thought you'd bought...I think I thought you'd bought HEART OF STONE. :)

You didn't put a big friendly sign with my name on it right on the front cover that said, "Hey idiot! Flip the book over because it completely shows that there's a 1st book and this ain't it!"

Ah, the folly of having a whim at a bookstore. LOL
Don't worry, I'm going back to buy the 1st one. I wish this was May, then I could buy the new Glen Cook (Cruel Zinc Melodies ) at the same time. I'm going to HAVE to read the 1st book because I just can't get past thinking a dragon is the coolest thing ever and must stop myself with thinking, "TonySopranoTonySopranoTonySoprano!" I'm at the beginning and he hasn't done anything bad yet. Perhaps he was bad in the 1st book and I can furrow my brow appropriately for the 2nd, LOL

It's true. I utterly forgot to ask them to add that as a design feature. *looks ashamed* :)

*laughs* I love Janx too. :)

Sheesh, and here I was feeling good about hitting 40,000....*

Slow down, damn it! You're making me tired!

*not counting revisions stuff. If I counted that I'd probably cry, come December...

Oh, lordy, believe me, I'm making me tired too. My brain is very near running on empty. But I can't slow down until I've got this book, which is pushing two months late now, done, and the next one, which is due in June, done.

I'm going to crawl in a pit and cry for a week after that.
