Very happy to get 'unstuck' with my Races essay, which I'd been stuck on since last Sunday. Just skipped over the part that's giving me trouble and wrote the rest of the human section--and passed the 15,000 word mark in the process! This essay's certainly significantly longer than my avarii and hyarmi ones. Now if I can just conquer the sticky part, I'll be off to section five, which is the one I'm most excited about writing (book 5 spoilers galore!)
Happy to have a nice long phone-call with my mom, even if she was making me quite green in the face with all that she got to see on her trip to Monterey with her friend Cindy that she got back from late Friday--dolphins, sea otters, porpoises, humpback whales, and albatrosses in the wild, oh my! Nice to start doing some planning for my Christmas vacation.
