Out With The Old ...

Two days past 90 and I'm finally through all the rewrite material. Sitting on page 452. The prior draft was 450 pages. I'd say I'm probably a fifth or a quarter into the last chapter. Which is about 24 pages long so far. So 75 to 100 more pages? Nah, can't be that much more. Except, Rule #3* is still in effect. So ... make it a minimum of 50 pages left. That doesn't look as daunting.

This is the part where I didn't know how many pages it would take to reach the end. I still don't have any complaints about how Novel in 90 ran. I'm only 1-2 pages ahead of my prior page count, and this is after cutting and trimming and polishing and even adding a whole new chapter (a short one; only nine pages) at the beginning to show some background and leave less implied than before.

Hey there,
It's good to see that your still working away at it. Good on you!

I came out as...

I'm terza rima, and I talk and smile.
Where others lock their rhymes and thoughts away
I let mine out, and chatter all the while.

I'm rarely on my own - a wasted day
Is any day that's spent without a friend,
With nothing much to do or hear or say.

I like to be with people, and depend
On company for being entertained;
Which seems a good solution, in the end.

I'll be fine ;o) Today was a getting to know you day. Lots of people who hung back yesterday, were not hanging back today. People were in and wanting to get a look at me, meet me and all. I was being educated as to the services and work involved in reception and secretarial work for the center. It was kind of fun. I haven't done anything like that in a long time. Apparently I was due for all sorts of cranky, awful callers. Everyone was sweet as sweet could be.

Tomorrow morning the head of finance is going off to give a talk to some organization of business women. Apparently it is part of my job and I'll be doing in next time. Guess they decided that my third day on the job wouldn't be a good time to throw me into something like that ;o) In particular given that I don't have a clue what I would have been speaking about... Haven't reviewed the workshops yet.
