Today's word count on LiA is a rather less impressive 642, introducing Drou and bridging to the next drama-filled bit, but in my defence I should point out that I've been up today since 1.30am and it's impressive that I can type coherent sentences at all. Clearly, saying anything at all about how much sleep I'd had the previous night was just tempting fate too far. Perhaps if I complain bitterly about not having anywhere near enough sleep, that will make the boy sleep tonight? Can't hurt to try, I guess.
(I did also write some dreadful hurt/comfort in the middle of the night because it was that or beat my head against the wall and cry, but I'm not sure I should count that, since it wasn't LiA.)
