Started late, but still got 2K today and finished Chapter 19, for Bad Draft values of "finished." Since a bunch of the early-chapter exposition and faffing about will eventually have to come out, and there are whole scenes that are little better than summarized, I'm in good shape for an eventual 400-page manuscript, even though it looks right now like it's running long.
Tomorrow, on to Chapter 20! Which means I have three chapters, an interlude, and an epilogue between me and --30--. We really are getting somewhere. Of course, in Chapter 20, I have an Important Historical Plot Point and it's implications I need to sort out--or maybe pray that my editor and/or agent can sort out, because I'm at a loss.
But anyway. Enough of that. Now I need to do the parts of my job and my life I really hate, because they involve phone calls and stuff. Oh, and get that book sale post up.
