So it’s Day 10 of Round 3 at ROW80.
After last week’s massive upset, I finally got back into writing on Monday with a respectable 1100 words that brought me within 4 chapters of the end of Red. I am past the 75% mark and working my way through the build of that final climax. Tuesday I came in at 640 words, which I was very happy with considering that I was procrastinating on the scene SO BAD, I came home and push mowed 2/3rds of my yard when the heat index was 106. I’d have done the whole thing but the grass was so high, my electric mower didn’t last all the way through. Hubs finished when he got home from work a couple hours later.
Sooper Seekrit Sexy Next Book seems content to sit back now that I’ve had the initial flurry of note making. I’ve got a pretty decent blueprint started and most of Act 1 outlined. There’s a long list of questions that need answering before I go further with the plot, and those I’ve made note of and am letting them percolate.
This morning is all about the vet. A couple months ago, Daisy had a bacterial infection. Well, my father in law recently discovered that his dog also has a bacterial infection–and it was at such an advanced state, he’s probably had it since Daisy had hers originally. Add to that my dogs are acting weird and Callie actually TURNED DOWN FOOD, and I’m hauling them both in to get checked since they’ve been hanging out at G’pa’s. Daisy was going in anyway for a teeth cleaning. (Update: No infection in either of them.)
After that, if I have time, I’ll haul myself to the doctor to get my foot x-rayed to determined if I did or didn’t fracture it over the weekend. (Update: It’s not broken.) There’s a funky bruising spreading up from between my toes and it’s pretty sore in a dull ache kinda way after yesterday’s mowing, so it seems prudent to have it checked. It would break my life long streak of never having broken a bone.
At least all the waiting room time will give me a good chunk of reading time to wallow in Daughter of Smoke and Bone, which is all kinds of awesome.
