As of a few minutes ago, Nano is at the halfway point. Since I already have one of my beta readers chomping at the bit to read my next book, this is more than a good thing. Gotta keep those wonderful betas happy, doncha know.

Of course, Nano is still a bit scattered, but I'm forging ahead anyway. If it's still jumbled when I type THE END, then I'll pull it apart and sew it back together. I don't think I'm that far off of the finished layout anyway.

Unfortunately, it's only quarter after eight and I can hardly keep my eyes open. Maybe I'll make a pot of coffee. That'll keep me up until the wee hours of the morning. I'll be trashed tomorrow, but that's the price we pay for our work. Right?

Oh, speaking of tomorrow, I'm getting a haircut. Not a big thing in most people's lives, but since I only get my hair cut a couple times a year, it's big for me. I'm going short this time. (Right now, my hair hangs past my shoulders.) Should be fun. If it turns out, I should probably post a new picture over there. We'll see how it goes.

Anyway, back to work for me. Or sleep... Coffee! I need coffee!!

Well done on the halfway mark! Keeping going. I can't work through the night though. I'm definately a morning sort of person - actually if I'm honest - some the best stuff comes out in the afternoon which is not my best writing time because I am normally spending time with dd.

Anyway enough of a ramble. Good luck with the hair cut - I find the problem when I go short is that is needs to be cut more often!

Well done with the book. I need less sleep than most but couldn't possible manage to work through the night.

Hope the haircut goes well too.
