Recovery from the writing marathon is taking a bit longer than expected. I was able to get about halfway through another book, and I really love the new characters (I know! I say that about every book), but I hit a wall just shy of my goal. Still, I managed to write the equivalent of 115 printed pages (more than 28,000 words) in 3 days. Whew! Taking a few days off to let the ideas percolate, then I will be jumping back in.
