Randomly, Hers Truly wanted to ice skate. We went to the skating rink, spent $16, got 2/3 around, and she was done. Mind you, getting 2/3 around took half an hour.
Have you ever gone ice skating by holding onto a small child for half-an-hour? Exhausting.
The novel editing proceeds. The middle is still rougher than I would prefer. Either end looks good. *sigh* More work than I want to do. I'm still slicing stuff out, though. The work is better for it.
