Ah, that was fun....

Just finished writing the Family Dinner. Full of backhanded compliments, hidden insults and infighting. I can probably refine it in rewrites, but there are some glittering gems of venom and spite hidden in there, and that's always fun to write.

I got 3,809 done tonight, putting me at 14,474 total - 5,530 behind. That's only 3.3 days, which is an improvement.

One of my favorite lines from tonight: "The conversation stopped dead, hanging like the coyote about to plummet down the gorge."

Also found that I really like writing to trance music. Go figure.
