4500 words today, and a podcast. I finished chapter 18, finally, meaning that Zeno's Book is back to having only one chapter left to go. There's a vague possibility that I may finish this tomorrow, but Monday is more likely.
It doesn't matter. Today, I am t3h s3x.
I am at 526 pages of novel, and the book is officially longer than Range of Ghosts now. I even like what I was writing, and I am so proud of the kicker lines to two of these scenes it makes me giddy.
There's a bit I chose to exposit and narrate that I may go back in the final draft and turn into a series of short scenes--except I'm not sure it's doing enough work to deserve that much time in the draft, and considering where my wordcount is, right now it can just stay like it is while I think about it.
Jinky, I've done a lot of work these past few days. Mostly, I love what I am writing. There are a couple of [clever simile here] bracket notes, but either we'll fix that or remove the need for it on the next pass, so I'm not too worried.
Still not sure what I'm doing with the yetis.
Now, as I mentioned on twitter, I think I might go drink whisky and cry. Actually, I won't be drinking whisky, because Discipline, but I might cry. Given the state of my mid-back, it is a great grief of my life right now that that boy I like is too far away to conveniently demand backrubs from.
Tomorrow, chapter 19.
