The odd format for the "number of words written today" section is because I've missed the last several posts, and I only know that I wrote 4,072 words today. But I don't want to give the impression so that this was a 12k day, and so I format it oddly to show that off. Hooray!
It's a little weird working on this book when book six just came out. For one thing, this is the first time ever that a book has been released while its sequel was still being written. So having Ashes of Honor so well-received has just upped the stakes on me. I think that's a good thing. I'm not going to change my story to make any specific person feel better, but I can motivate myself to earn those reviews again. Also, I can make Toby's life a living hell in the process. Everybody wins.
I will now get dressed and go out, and when I get home tonight, I'll see about finishing "Married In Green."
It's a good life.
