A harrowing Monday in some respects, but it has some bright spots:

     Got an e-mail from Christi--she finishing reading book 4 sometime during her vacation week at Wisconsin Dells! AND--she hasn't shown up at my door (yet) with pitchforks and dynamite! This is a good thing! ;)

     Quite a blessing from God--after being internally stuck with Delarun section 3 every time I tried to think about it last week, now that I'm actually writing it, it's just 'gushing' out. Assuming the incoming heat wave doesn't flatten me, maybe I can finish over the holiday weekend! *bounces*

Emotional Status:
hot 78 F/26 C summer is here =(

I was about to ask what was harrowing, but then I saw the temperature. Don't suppose we could magically change places? It's about 16 C here. 10 degrees warmer would be just right.

How wonderful to have the story come out so effortlessly! There must have been a lot going on under the surface while you were stuck.

Uh, does this mean I need to find a pitchfork before attempting book 4? :D

Actually, no, though that will doubtless be harrowing me after another bad night or two! It's Kathy not recovering as well as I hoped, and my boss's cousin dying Monday morning, and now my sister-in-law's father up for emergency heart surgery today. Everything seems to come in clusters. =(

Yes! I think it was struggling with how to start the story, as the old version beginning from college days doesn't fit how things are now. Some of the things I've been watching seemed to help as well.

Well, what should I say to that? ;D I certainly deserve it; can't say I want it!

Your writing really has come back with a vengeance the past writing year, hasn't it? *hopes she'll get to finish the section before the heatwave strikes*

And yes Book 4 sounds very, very dangerous if you're fearing the involvement of pitchforks...

Not compared to last year! But this year's progress seems to have me solidly in position for a 3rd-place finish. =)

The heatwave is here, but at least it's supposed to get closer to normal by the end of the week.

It is. =(

That is great on Christi finishing book 4. Has she given you any
feedback yet?
So good on the Delarun front and I hope you can manage to finish it this weekend.

Not on the ending, nope. I think she wants to when we have lunch.

Me too!
