Eighteen hundred words tonight! Plumped down in my writing chair right after dinner and didn't get up until I'd written a scene in which Clarity and Jason launch into space, lasers blasting all around them, as they move into orbit for their final confrontation with Raptor. Zowie! And a million toy balloons save the day. That last detail is something I hadn't had in mind until just today, when I realized that the ordinary human populace (represented by Garrett) had to have a part to play at the climax. It also solved a plot problem without unnecessary violence. I'm quite proud of it.
And in case I don't get to post tomorrow... Happy Thanksgiving!
