It's done folks.  Page 200.  Such an exhilarating moment!  And literally, as I typed this number, the blues scored the winning shot in triple over time. Very exciting moments for me!   Now... Off to page 300!

You don't know how good it felt to type this... This one simple three digit red fonted number. I think I just sat there and gawked at it for about ten minutes! I've come this far. There's now backing out now! I have reached the point of know return!

Unfortunately the necessity to go to school cut my morning writing off mid - scene, and during one of the finest crafted scenes yet of course.  I just can't seem to get my mind off of it, so, until I'm able to get home I'll be here with my tea and my red pe. scribbling random, useless edits, until I can rip this idea out of my head and plaster it onto paper.

Beautiful day for hanging outside with my typewriter.

Today was a Sunday, so I had plenty of time for writing.  I realized that I had neglected to use Minerva, my beautiful Royal Portable Model O for quit some time since I've been using my desk model in the morning,  today I just wanted to hear her beautiful crunch once again!  Much as humans have different voices, typewriters have different crunches.  Today I wanted to hear the crisp crunch of Minerva :)

Finally got myself a nice cozy nook in the warm upper parts of the home.  This recent development has highly increased my production of writing.  Now I'm spitting out no less than three pages and at time 7 pages a day!  Wow!

150th page + today. The action has taken a pause and It's getting knee deep in philosophy.  Today I was struck with a radical turn my novel can take which will completely change the course I had planned.  But, it's the novel which controls my writing, not I who controls it.

So this is what a quarter of a thousand pages looks like?  I like how it compares to the Stephen King novel on the right and the Judicial encyclopedia on the left

So this is what a 100 page novel... A 100 page manuscript looks like?  I've waited so long for this day, to finally see what it would look like.  I'd never known it'd be so beautiful.

My novel's outgrown it's tattered orange folder so I had to go out and buy this nifty expandable satchel/folder/wallet thing.  Pages were constantly flying everywhere so... Unfortunately it had to happen. I still keep it in the folder for sentimental reasons, but I at least put the folder with the novel in it in the satchel/folder/wallet thing :3
