With a bit of luck, I will have only three chapters to go by tonight.
That's it. The saltmines await. Please - do feel free to talk among yourselves - I'll be along as soon as I have given myself permission to stop.
Until later -
UPDATE, in response to comments
Yes, the chapter is finished - in terms of WRITTEN. I still have minor tweakery to do before it's up to even firstdraftia level, though, so no word count update yet, until I'm quite done with it. But I'll be writing Chapter 13 next week - we'll see how lucky it proves to be. Or should I follow the example of certain upscale hotels which don't have a 13th floor, make #13 two words long ("Stuff happened") and go straight into #14...?
