I had a good writing day yesterday--despite DD hanging on my shoulder for the whole morning just because I'd banned TV.
There's nothing to doooo mommy....
But I realized something--completely unrelated to whining children. In my head I was writing a 100K word book, and this is going to be a 80K book.
Who cares I hear you cry--just write the d@mn book.
Well I care--because I need to set up my turning points (TP) for around the 1/4, 1/2 and 3/4 parts way through the book. Here's me aiming for the first TP being at around 100 pages and really it needs to be at (rats, where is the calculator... ) page 80!
I'm on page 41, and so now that fits perfectly with what I've written so far. There's been a lot of plot early on--lots of character introduction and clashes between the hero and heroine, but no real emotional interaction. They need to spend a few pages in close proximity to build on their previous bond (if you can call what happened between them in Her Sanctuary a bond, LOL).
Marsh isn't going anywhere while The Blade Hunter is around, but Josie's not happy about it.

Plus--the Oilers lost game 4. Rats. Meretta hasn't mentioned it but I know she is devastated.
