My eye started going bloodshot last night. Cue me freaking out. I'm supposed to be off antibiotics. ALL I WANT IS TO WEAR MY MASCARA IN PEACE!
In happier news, I'm done with chapter 11--got my groove back and have pulled double word count the last two days. Chapter 12 marks the start of climaxing and "resolutions"* of the book, which really is like a "part 3" that will take several chapters to complete. Not sure how many. I just know chapter 13 has a ball and I get to make my protagonist pretty/feel stupid. Woo.
As for Piscis, there's been lots of research about ocean zones and lanternfish going down. Man, I don't think I've ever written a short story that requires so much Wikipedia. ;)
*Who am I kidding, it ends on a cliffhanger. Huzzah for trilogies.
