01:49 pm - Useful Work Realization
I'm about to start editing the portion of the Aeon core book that I wrote, and just needed to finish up one chapter I'd been working on.  However, for the last two days I've been frustrated because I wasn't sure what else to write - last night I checked the outline that I'd written for it, I'd written 8,000 words, and even with increases for editing (my writing always grows by at least 10% when I edit it), it was well short of the 13,500 words I'd allocated for that chapter - until I actually read my outline, the last 4.500 words of that chapter were rules that one of my other authors will write, so I'd written 8,000 of 9,000 words.  So, I'm actually done and ready to start editing other than a day of adding in a few bits and pieces to another chapter.
Current Mood: pleasedpleased

Sweet realization.

Also, we'd started chatting 'bout stuff 'n' thing t'other night, but didn't get around to finishing up, so it'd be great to hang out some time and talk s'more before long, or else there'll be even more to catch up on and about ;-)

I'd pay money to have a moment where I say everything I have to say and then realize I have room left over.

I'm usually exactly the same, this surprised me, and of course it turns out that I need to write a little more on that section, so it will end up more like 10,000 words before I attempt to cut it down to size.
