I've got over 260 pages done in Rider! Yeah, that's not the whole book which should be around 400 pages but it's halfway there! That means I'm on the downside (vbg) and though I love the story and the characters, I can't wait to type The End.
I'd hoped to be done with this one already but my writing time keeps getting sucked into various black holes. There's more than one, you ask? Yes, indeedy, I answer.
There's the day job black hole, the one where I have to spend extra hours to cover vacationing members of my team. (It's not bad enough that I'm there 9 1/2 hours a day, oh no.)
There are any number of black holes--the grocery shopping BH, the housekeeping BH, the commute to work BH...all of them are designed to suck in every single free minute.
But I've managed to steal a few minutes here and there and now have those wonderful 260 pages! To borrow one of Wookie's phrases--I am pleased.
