Tired Author is Tired (but Productive)

It was a very long day at work today. But, I still managed to get some work done this evening with the rewrite of On Wings of Steel. Finished the revisions for one more chapter, with 3,638 words revised/added to the manuscript.

Things are moving toward the climax now. With the revisions, I think I’m going to wind up with about four more chapters and then it’s time to put this puppy to bed. Probably going to wind up around 100K when I’m done, which is slightly over my anticipated word count of 80K, but then again, I’m a long-winded cuss.

It’s probably a good thing I pushed myself to work on this tonight, since I start back into school tomorrow night. My final classroom class for my Masters (Seminar on African Literature). All I have to do besides that is the Comprehensives and my Thesis. There is a light at the end of the tunnel. Of course, there’s probably a train somewhere between me and it, but at least I can see light around the edges.

And now to put *me* to bed.

    I'm going to take a critique of Dracula based on one school of literary criticism (say, Neo-Marxist) and then deconstruct that critique using the focus of a different school of theory (say feminist,…

    Not this year, alas. But I may well take you up on that next time :)

    Well, if you want to fly over here, I can put you up at my place and get you a guest ticket. *grin* Might even try to get your opinion of my scotch collection.

    Airfare is on you, though.
