1300 words on the novel for the day so far, bringing the total to 103287 and halfway through Chapter 23, leaving only a scene in which two male characters bond over stories about their fathers in order to complete it. Please feel free to post father stories that I can shamelessly steal in the comments. I'm sure we all have them.
Meanwhile, I'm taking both the novel and some terrorism writing to the coffee shop -- too pretty a day to stay inside.
3000 words finished on the novel for the day, and so I'll leave off for now just as I start Chapter 25. I'm at 105010 right now, so I think this may end up nudging a little over 110k but not by too much. I hope. Got in some study guide work as well while coffee-shopped this afternoon and answered a couple of emails. Wayne has asked me a couple of times how many e-mails I write in a week, and truth be told, I'm afraid to reckon it up, between Fantasy Magazine, personal e-mail, and game mail. I suspect at least a couple of hundred.
I finished John Marks' Fangland and Jeanette Winterson's The Stone Gods this week. I liked one much better than the other and will post some observations when I get the chance. Probably tonight as we catch up on Top Chef.
Tonight features a delicious scallops and squash and peanut sauce medley over rice noodles, which should be good.
