Wrote 5 Pages Tonight

Five pages in to the final chapter now. Maybe another ten pages, then the first draft is DONE.

I said, done.

Then a week or so off, then back to rewrite. Must sharpen characterization, get rid of adverbs, tighten, cut, and generally make better.

I stumbled upon your blog and found myself going back through several posts. You are a wonderful writer, your style is so easy, yet so captivating. I really appreciate your subtle pops of humor. Squeaky was a particularly great read, don't tell your landlord the cats did it... :)

Thanks, OneCraftyFox! We writers need all the ego boosts we can get, so this was great to read.

I think you're right about not blaming the cats too... clearly you are most perspicacious. ;)
