Empire Ship progress:
. Wrote a series of new scenes that really moved things along.
. Word count up to 111,200 from last update of 107,180: a gain of about 4000 words.
. Page count up to 364 from last update of 350.
. Mood music assistance: Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, Tool, and a few tracks from some other groups that didn't really work.
I also realized last night that I'm only really satisfied with life, I only feel like I'm fully alive, when I'm working on fiction. How did I forget this? Many years of doing something that was writing but couldn't really satisfy my need, I guess. Like living on pretzels and vitamin pills: It'll keep you alive but not well.
Plus I got to talk to my girl again last night. She's home in 6 days and counting!
