Well, I’m exhausted. Although I only wrote seven pages today, I also ended up rewriting another twenty. By the time the dust settled on my laptop this evening, I’d hit the 50 page mark. All I have to do now is finish off this conversation, completing Act V, then write the tag which will include not one, not two, but THREE surprises.
