Reason for stopping: Dead on my feet.
I've skipped chapters seven and eight, for which I do have outline notes and some snatches of dialogue, and spent today working on the still very rough, very emotional scene in chapter nine where Things Get Laid On The Table. Which is a terrible pun, but I'm too tired to fix it.
Lots of Zappa on the MP3 mixer today. Weird, 'cause I was talking with my Dad about Zappa yesterday.
