Notes from a Drama Queen

Day 2 afternoon

So we're at 27 pages so far. I downloaded Nick Cave's Murder Ballads and they're so freaking creepy that I'm going to have a hard time getting them out of my head when this book is done.

Our heroine has finally gotten her shit together and decided to leave her husband when, like Bluebeard's wife, she discovers proof that he's the serial killer. Now she's got to rescue her daughter and kill her husband and have a happy ending. Mind you, I have about 85 pages to go.

And only two and a half days to do it. Can I make it? Of course!

So maybe I get a short break now. Eaten a big breakfast at Denny's (midday) to make up for my lack of dinner last night, and three plain bagels and a couple of DCs. I'm actually even sitting at the desk instead of in a chair -- I haven't written at a desk for years and years. But there's no recliner in my hotel room, so what can you do?
