Well. Best writing day since I wrapped "The Specific Gravity of Grief" before my surgery in November. Two hours this morning on "Her Fingers Like Whips, Her Eyes Like Razors" at 3,500 words in finished first draft in one pass. An hour and forty minutes just now revising Endurance (sequel to Green). Man, do I feel like a real writer.

Endurance will be going out to first readers in about ten days, btw. So I am on the stick like a stick-being-on thing.

And cancer? Kiss my ass.

Jay, thanks for sharing this good news! I just received the sad news that a friend lost his 10 year fight with an extremely rare cancer, and moments later saw your post. "Cancer, kiss my ass" is a sentiment I can get behind tonight!

Damn, man. To my knowledge I have no issues other than being a World Class Slow Writer, and I wrote 2500 words today and thought I was utterly chock full of win. You, however, are an example to us all, dammit.

If I remember right, that is a 1.4 Lake day. I've decided unofficially, in my capacity as the keeper of writing measurements, that a "Lake," when used to indicate writing productivity, should be capitalized. We don't want to cheapen the brand.
