TGIF

Wordcount: 451
Reason for stopping: Will is working his ass off to keep me from getting too close to his kids. I expect he's been reading his biographies again, and is running scared. I need to go read some more and let some word generate.

Orlando: My fair Rosalind, I come within an hour of my promise.

More bookkeeping

A little more desultory poking to bring me to 712 words for the day, which I think will suffice.

Okay, the frelling Elizabethans are rubbing off on me a little too much.
