Word count: 119953 | Since last entry: 494 | This month: 1703 A really nasty week at work, with two projects still both in crunch mode (one of them having an offsite meeting all day Thursday and Friday). I didn’t have the energy to write in the evenings, but I made Kate promise to make me work on my novel tonight. Then I came home and noticed we had a party on the calendar. Kate very generously told me to go and write for an hour while she made soup for dinner. I love my Kate. I wrote almost 500 words of the new prologue, then we had dinner and attended a fine party at Sam & Shandra’s, featuring much fine conversation and a keen variation of the game Bottecelli in which one player thinks of a person (announcing the first letter of thenir name) and the others must stump him with trivia questions — whose answers begin with that same letter — to earn the right to ask a yes-or-no question about the person. More writing tomorrow!!
