EPIC thunderstorm came through while we were eating lunch. Lost 13 degrees and flooded the kitchen floor! You know your thunderstorm’s a success when the kitchen floor floods. The weatherbeans have us under a storm watch until 7:00 tonight, so we may have more excitement in our immediate future. Next time, though, we’ll close the kitchen door, even if the wind is amazing!
And! Because I know y’all are on the edge of your chairs: Update on the status of Alliance of Equals.
1. I have finished inputting all the correx. Manuscript now stands at more-or-less 102,638 words. Also? We have used up every sticky tab in the house.
2. The rest of today and tomorrow will involve writing and polishing the final scenes. (No, it’s fine. Really. Everything’s on schedule. Promise.)
2a. After we’re satisfied with 2, we’ll need to double-check if we need to go back and sharpen That Scene There, or if it plays well as it is.
3. Steve is putting the finishing touches on the Cast of Characters.
4. We anticipate a smooth compiling and that the manuscript will be on Madame’s desk on Monday. So we can, yanno, pack.
And that’s it. Situation normal. Except for the packing part. Also, I’m liable to spend a lot of our non-bookstore-time sleeping on this tour, because — end-of-book brain.
I’m turning the internets off now so I can get some work done. Y’all stay safe.
