I am, I think, about 4 chapters from the end now (shut UP, debtaber, I can hear what you are thinking).

The trouble is they are all exceedingly complex chapters. I am capable, in full flight, of doing a chapter a day - 5000 words worth a day - but these babies, they will need some coddling. And I have a conference this weekend, and a convention the weekend after.

Hmm. It might take me closer to two weeks.

But I can see the end from here. Almost done. AAAAAALMOST done.


Make that

Chapter 29 down.

Chapter 30 coming up. One of the most important chapters in the book. This one is going to need a little bit of time and TLC to achieve its full potential.

But I managed another full chapter today.

I am pleased.

"Christmas discounts for meds"

Er, people. Those folks who need meds kind of need them year round, as it were. These aren't furry slippers or funny T-shirts or seasonal decorations we are talking about. Meds aren't purchased for, you know, PRESENTS. I don't think I've ever heard of anyone who had a year's supply of their medication, bought at a Christmas discount, wrapped to be put under the tree.
