almost there.  

I have finished everything except the epilogue and the rewrite of the prologue. The book is currently weighing in at 176,400 words, and I expect the epilogue will be around 3K, as will be the rewritten prologue (the original of which is included in the book’s wordcount, so it, at least, won’t add more to the book).

My plan: write the epilogue tomorrow morning, then do AAs on HoF all afternoon and into the evening, and then on Thursday rewrite the prologue and finish the AAs. Fixing manuscript notes, doing spell checks, and printing the TPC behemoth out while typing up the AAs will be Friday’s job, and both books will be turned in Friday afternoon.

I’m going to go have a breakdown now.

ytd wordcount: 197,100
miles to Minas Tirith: 397.6

We're just a teeter-totter here, aren't we? :)

does that mean I can have the word-count now? Our editor would muchly appreciate it...

(only 30,000 words to go. I can do that. Maybe not this month, but I can do that, yeah, um, yeah.)

It's yours as of the weekend, as far as I'm concerned. Go go gadget writer! :)

I loves epilogues... they are my favorite. No really!

No, no. Breakdown must be scheduled in for after Friday afternoon so TPC is in the mail first! (I would threaten to send you some chocolate for breakdown prevention, but then again that would ruin all that nice exercising...)

Heavy weighing in. THUD! Just think how light you will feel when the weight is all off you and in the post? **crosses fingers and plans cake

You'd think so, but it doesn't really work that way. It's rarely more than a mild relief, and the feeling doesn't last.
