First, I need to say that I did not WRITE 3,555 words today. I wrote quite a few of the words I got today during that wrong direction I took in Book 3.
From the mess I made of that before I ripped out those chapters and wrote new ones, I saved a number of chapters that I knew were good, but that had happened in the wrong place.
And I got use about 2500 words of one of those… and then I added.
So today was a bunch of work. But it was fun work, with a dude who made me laugh the first time he showed up, and who made me laugh even harder today. I’m glad I got to save him.
And as a nod to a friend I misplaced about twenty-four years ago somewhere down in Texas…
I also saved the elves.
