[travel|personal] Miscellaneous updatery heads for the corn

Well, let's see....got bumped, came to Omaha via Denver and Dallas. This chewed up a bit more of the day but wasn't the end of the world.

The Hertz random upgrade program hath delivered unto me a very hot Dodge Magnum wagon. I'm going to have to park at the back of the lot at work, lest anyone think I asked for a car from the premium collection.

Got 9,300 words done on "America, Such as She Is" (per the WIP here). I'm trying to follow my new process, as mentioned recently, moving slower through the text and paying a lot more attention to detail. This has resulted, first of all, in me writing slower than normal. (Yes, 9,300 words is slow for the time I put into it.) Also, this process has blown my sense of story length. Historically, I've been able to make very accurate estimations of length fairly early in the process. This one is baffling me.

It also feels very good to me. We'll see.

Day job tomorrow.
