Another 700+ words last night, half of which were new. I’m not sure how much ground I covered of the earlier draft, (2k! Really?) because I deleted as I went.
But this section is definitely tighter.
Minor quibbles to start with today–I had Mareet in a crouch, staring at the crowd inside. That’s going to have to change if she can see people enough to know who they are. I’ll have to change the angle of her view, too, because I didn’t incorporate that. But overall? It was better on last night’s read than I thought, and needed fewer fixes.
Tonight, I’ll start there, but I should be able to move on to Kalim’s section–and that shouldn’t need much tweaking. Then I’ll hit Bashak’s next scene, and we’ll start the dragging process all over again.
Next up, sewing more coffee-cup sized circles down the white panels of a baby quilt. Technically it’s the Slug’s quilt, but it needs to get finished. The way it’s going, it’ll be Sunday before I’m done. Which is longer than I really want to spend on it.
After that and my walk, it’s off to school. I’m hoping I can finish it off and clean out two file cabinets. I hope. I hope.
Yes, it’s vacation, but it sure doesn’t feel like it. I have some harvesting to do (tomatoes! Zucchini and crookneck squash! Green beans!) and weeding. The gopher seems to be gone, since nothing else has been devoured in the raised beds. A little cyanide gas will do that to them.
Don’t quite know when I will get it all done, but I’ll continue to plug away at it. I’ll definitely need a vacation after my vacation, though.
