Ch. 22 Writing Update

Hey, again.  I need to take a brain break.  This chapter is turning out to be very long (so far 2600 words and quite a bit to go), and I don't want to rush it... so I think I'll just surf and read a little... go play with my daughter, too.

Here's a little tease to whet your appetite (dedicated to bistyboo1974 and earlgrayhot):

----

She suddenly noticed that Clark was still standing there, dripping wet.  Lois gave his plastered bedclothes another languid glance.  His clinging shirt and flannel bottoms were leaving very little to the imagination… Snap out of it, Lane!  Your very curious little boy is standing right here!  “Don’t you need to get out of those?”

Clark blushed shyly at her unintentional double-entendre.  “Well, that towel there is the last clean one… all I have left are dish towels.”  He looked down at his feet.  “I’ll be fine.”

It took every ounce of determination she had to hand the towel she was using back to him.  “Here.  Use this one. It’s still dry enough.”

----

I hope to finish soon!  But then it goes to the betas, so we're definitely looking at Monday.

Dammit! I thought I hid all of those silly towels... ;-)

And Jeez, clinging flannel PJ bottoms?

Can't. Breathe.

*THUD*

Tomorrow can't come soon enough. *big grin*

He was keeping a spare for just such an occasion, I guess...

Is your story's ETA still this evening?

Pfft. Must remember to hide the spares as well. ;-)

And yes, I'm still thinking later this evening it'll be ready for launch. *keeps fingers crossed*

Wow, Lois is certainly having a fun time, isn't she?

Waiting, with a semblance of patience, for this chapter to be posted!

She certainly is. But she's also trying to calm herself down in front of her child! Hee.

I wish I could go any faster. The muse needs a break. :)

I know -- Lois has to juggle a lot, here. *giggles*

And we're ready to wait as long as it takes so that you can write when you have the time. Certainly no fun to wish being chained to a keyboard upon any one of our favourite writers, now is it?

I hope why he woke up will become clear early on in the next chapter! Or at least implied... :)
