A couple good things today:

     As for the first: snow! Buckets and buckets and torrents and torrents of it, from 9 am onward. It's still coming down now, though it's been just a shade too warm for it to pile up much. Makes for a wonderful March going 'out like a lion' and a great April Fool's Day joke, to boot!

     As for the second:

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

     Yes, Eeeeeee, I say most eloquently! I have finally, finally broken free and made some forward progress with book 4. At LAST! It has been a goal of mine lately to get things moving there again before I hit the two-year anniversary of my last forward progress. I cannot believe it's been that long, though a big part of that is that the depression months of 2007 are a black pit in my mind that exist in a separate universe from the other 32 years of my existence. I really can't believe it's been almost two years, but I was determined not to let it be even worse than with book 1. With that book, I bogged down in 'Detours' chapter in May of 1998, managed to wring the rest of it out of me at staggered intervals, but didn't get rolling with the next chapter, 'Midsummer,' until July of 2000. I really wasn't interested in breaking that record!

     So yay, yay, yay for progress at last! I've done some good work with my outline too, so God willing, I can get through at least five or more chapters before I run smack into a wall of perplexity.

     Yippee!
Emotional Status:
ecstatic SQUEE!

THAT IS FANTASTIC NEWS ON THE BREAK-THROUGH ON BOOK 4. HAS IT BEEN THAT LONG.

I HOPE YOU CONTINUE TO MAKE RAPID PROGRESS ON WRITING THE REMANING CHAPTERS.

THE SNOW SOUNDS LOVELY ESPECIALLY SINCE IT IS NOT STICKING. YOU CAN JUST ENJOY IT
FALLING.

It certainly has been a while, though it might feel shorter for the ARG! because I sent out the last chapters in September/October of 2006. Of course, the ARG! will have to wait longer for more as well.

Well, progress is good enough for me, rapid or otherwise!

Just an inch or two around here, which is less than the 5-8 they were talking about all day yesterday.

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! Congratulations on that break-through! *huggles*

And yay for snow for you! I've got sunshine, which makes me happy. The weather's behaving for a change, I'd say, giving us what we want and all. ^-^

*hugs back* I'm SO excited to be moving forward again! =D

*chuckles* Snow all over the place on April Fool's Day is a wonderful treat, but it will melt quite quickly.

*hugs back* It feels wonderful, and I hope I can plug away at it for a good month or so before it gets too hot.

(I can't even keep it! Other lucky folks got 8 inches, but me? Only 2. And it will be gone quite quickly, seeing it's April!)

YAY YAY YAY YAY YAY!!!

What good news! I'm so glad to hear this -- all for selfish reasons, of course! ;)

And enjoy the lovely snow!! Make a snow angel for me or something! ;)

Re: EEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!
*hugs* Your enthusiasm is delightful! =D

It's melting pretty fast out there; I don't know what will be left when I get home--at least I got some photos this morning!
