I found three whole chapters I'd made irrelevant, which means that TBFKaB1 has gone from 145K to 70.6K. I removed more than fifty percent of the damned thing. Hot dog!

I think I'm going to open TBFKAB2 and work out what needs to be rearranged first. I've got a few ideas. Mostly, though, I need some sleep. Assuming I can scrape a suitable spot from beneath either the very snorrific Import (I can hear him on the other side of the house) or a stunningly fat and spoiled cat. I'll probably make Aldous move from the couch. The poor Import has to be up at six, and he has a hard enough time getting to sleep without me making him budge up.

Yes. Rather proud of myself. There's a lot that still needs to be done, and I'll have to go back and patch some holes, but this is eminently doable.


  1. You should be proud of yourself. What a great job!

  2. I am. :) Now to get the other half sorted, then pare the remainder down to 120K. I suspect I'll need help with that second bit. Yay.

  3. You chose to move the CAT instead of the import? Seriously? And the cat let you? Wow. If I did that, I'd end up with a cat on my chest.

    Seriously though, congrats on the editing. That must feel really good.

  4. I figure I'll end up with a cat on my chest, anyway. Besides, the Import will just get cranky, steal all the blankets, and end up pushing me onto the floor in passive-aggressive sleepytime vengeance.

    Yeah, it does. :) A little less good now that I see how much work needs to be done to TBFKaB2, but I figure that's life's way of telling me to take a break. I need to knit a shawl for my mom, anyway, so I might as well get it done and out of the way. (Not in one day, mind.)

  5. Holy Cow, S.E.! You go. :)

    Hope you're ear infection gets better. Those things blow.

  6. Thank you! :) I'm twitching now 'cause I have to leave it for three whole days while I go to a family reunion. I'd take my laptop, but the Import is going to Annapolis for two weeks and claims he needs it more. Argh!

    Ear infection turned out to be TMJ triggered by the original infection. Kinda sucks, but the CDC doesn't need to be contacted. That's ALWAYS a good thing.
