novel progress report

So I played hermit and spent all weekend (except for a break to vacuum the house because of our sneezy kittens, adjust the front gutter, and move Kij's scooter into the garage) working on Empire Ship. Progress:

. Listened to a lot of Nine Inch Nails, Nirvana, Vast, and other music to get into the proper mood.
. Revisions DONE!
. Started writing new scenes: Finished two scene-sketches and a couple of short scenes. 'Twasn't easy -- I'm at a big turning point in the novel, which is probably why I stopped here long ago.
. Word count up to 105,260 from last update of 99,840: a gain of more than 5000 words. Yay me!
. Page count up to 345 from last update of 329.
