I Can Haz Reprieve?

I've been madly writing away for weeks now on jasmasson's Sweet Charity story for the last round, including some major work while riding to/from Disneyland and during the evenings there. I kept thinking it was closer to being done if only I would just push through, which is why you've seen nary a drabble from me in weeks now.

Well! I finished the first draft of it last night, and it clocks in at almost 5800 words. Those of you who know me will have some idea of how hard it is for me to write that length, and how rare it is (even moreso for Prison Break). I always promise a 1000-word minimum for Sweet Charity, and I thought this one might be right around that length. HAH! Though I expect Jas won't mind the longer length. ;)

Off to the polishing phase now, amid errands and planting fruits & vegetables with Lauren this weekend (who knew she'd be interested in that?)

I see daylight ahead! And drabbles and a few other things, on the way to starting my Sweet Charity assignments from this most recent round. :D
