Marathon day and 5234 words… whew! Today I turned a corner in more ways than one. Not only am I within sight of my goal, but the novel is picking up in awesome ways with the entry of my hidden puppetmaster character, Lady Mine Natogara. Naturally, it all comes to a head with a memorable throneroom scene and a heroine who just won’t bow. I’m tired and my eyes are crossing, but I can’t wait to get back to it tomorrow.
