sleeping & writing

I went to bed last night and my mind starting going *churn churn churn* on this book and I tried to store the thoughts away for this morning, because they were good thoughts but I didn’t want to stay up all night writing them. I’m not sure if I stored them all well enough, but I managed to hang on to some of them, and consequently got 1500 words written this morning and although I still feel that I’ve got a whole lot of work to do on this book, I am at least *quite* pleased with the end of chapter 32, and feeling fairly confident that the book will wrap up in ch. 35 as anticipated.

I had quite a lot of hair-pulling and not exactly florning but going *glghtlght* about the whole stupid book last night, and Sarah and Trip were very good about listening to me and petpatting me and assuring me I didn’t suck as much as I thought I did. :) So thanks, guys.

I also decided that I was going to make a Big Push and finish writing this book this weekend. This seemed more dramatic, mind you, when you bear in mind that I thought yesterday was Thursday and today was Friday and that I wouldn’t have two more days of not-weekend to write in. Given that today is in fact Thursday, and that unless something goes horribly wrong with the day, I will spend some time this evening writing, it actually seems more inevitable that I’ll finish this weekend than dramatic. I’m very close to the end and this is the point at which I usually start feeling like I Can’t Stop Writing Until It’s Done.

Thank God. o.o :)

    Just remember to eat something occasionally, and drink lots of water, while you’re making this last big push….

    Hmmm…last big push…Sounds kind of like the end of giving birth….in more ways than one, I think…. :)
