Blew past the 50-pages mark

I’m heading toward sixty pages of manuscript type-in for the day as I write this, with 4500 net new words added to the manuscript (don’t even want to consider gross new words, because I have added in pages and pages of handwritten stuff this morning and afternoon) and I’m going to keep running with this until the guys get back from the hunt for the perfect video game.

I’m looking forward to seeing what Lisa Sandell, my editor, thinks. I’m forty percent of the way through the type-in, by my best estimation (considering I have no way to figure handwritten pages, but estimating that I was equally brutal with my revisions throughout the book).

Needed to stretch, wrote this as part of my stretch. Back to work.

    I hope you get a chance to rest up after you’re done with this pass through. You’re making great progress. I’m in awe.

    Hey, Jean. Glad you’re back.

    It’s going. I’m really tired of hurting all the time, though.

    Hang in there. You’re cooking along nicely.
