So I only stayed out on the porch until the afternoon sun took over. But it was nice. Grace was doing okay until - at the same time - two semi's went down the street and a huge plane flew over head. I thought she was going to jump out of her skin. She got over it though and went back to presiding over the porch like the queen she is (as in the Queen Latifah sense).
I took it to the parlor afterwards, helped Brian on his resume, and then went back to writing. Another good day: up to 49,503. Only 500 words from my original goal!! Whoo-hoo!
Of course, I still have about 7 or 8 scenes (not necessarily chapters, but probably) to go. So it might be I wind up around 57,000-ish. Not sure. I'm not very good at judging length yet.
I really do need to do some work on the site tomorrow. I've been ignoring it a little bit this week, but I need to get the newsletter out, do some maintenance and other stuff. I just really want to get this book finished up.
