Have surpassed the 50,000 word mark. Chapter 15 is done. One of the lines I wrote today: "As Parker moved to the door, Nate took a long gulp of his sipping whiskey."
Should be able to finish the book and get it off to beta readers this week.
Not tomorrow, though, as tomorrow we're off to visit wrenn
's Dad for Fathers Day. (We did celebrating with my own paternal units on Friday night.)
Also, tonight we went to see Men in Black 3
, which was very entertaining. Not as transcendent as the first, but a shit-ton better than the second. The only real problem was that there wasn't nearly enough Tommy Lee Jones. However, they get many extra points for getting the fashions and equipment and furniture and logos and everything
right for 1969.
(It's not clear why they killed off Agent Zed, played by Rip Torn, who was a high point of the previous two films, though one suspects it may relate to the actor's recent legal trouble...)
