I am 22. Whoo! I don't feel any more mature, though.
That alone wouldn't be worth a blog post, but I happen to have something much more awesome to say:
I have finished my third White Echoes draft. I had celebratory cake for the occasion, of course. :)
Then I immediately got back to replanning the entirety of Part 1. It looked real good in outline form, but when I wrote it, it felt all kinds of wrong. It had months to stew in my head, however, and is much smoother now. As soon as the last kinks are worked out, I start writing again.
I'm excited and relaxed. Vacations are going well.
