Finished for the day.

Well, here's the total for the day:


Not too bad, considering that a) I didn't get up until noon, b) I'm about as easily distracted as a small child with ADD surrounded by wrapping paper balls, and c) even when I was writing, someone in my family felt the had to interrupt me. And for some reason the boys couldn't feed themselves without my help tonight, which lost me half an hour of writing, and of course it fell just as I was getting into a groove. Argh.

A snippet to leave you all with:

"I don't know about you, but I had a very long day and I'm tired," Jack said, leaning his head against the side of Daniel's, just hard enough to force his head to one side so Jack could pretend to use it as a pillow. "I got threatened by the President of the United States. I retired from the Air Force for what should hopefully be the last time. I set a mutiny in motion, with what should be a very nice party to start it off. I think I've earned the right to drag you to bed and have my way with you."

Also, there's some apparently pretty funny quotes from the running commentary on the side of my draft (I love annotations), which can be found here, about halfway down the page.

'Night!

I don't usually post snippets, but then again, I've never written something this long before.

It's great that you're writing longfic, and the snippet definitely makes me want to read more.

That was the goal, yes. :D Then maybe I can get people to actually read and comment on my spastic meta posts.

*bows* Thank you!

I've found that, if given interrupted time when I'm actually focused, I can write about 1000 words an hour. However, I've found it to be nigh impossible to get an uninterrupted hour around here.
