PiP and I did another collaborative scene this weekend where we were both typing ideas and dialogue into it as it went. It wasn't the alternate dialogue discussion like we did one time before, but it was just as much fun. Except for a final review, we put both Chapters 17 AND 18 to bed by this evening.

It's interesting that we are both leeching elements of each other's style. Our dialogue is very similar in style and intuition now. If PiP didn't use extra vowels ;-), I wouldn't be able to tell a lot of it apart several days later. PiP wrote a dialogue scene tonight that was a wonderful and funny Summary Scene. Then, we had a bit too much going right for our Romantic Duo, so I threw in a little scene to cast some doubt there again.

We're very close to 64K words now.

Beats watching TV ... Once my MC hooked up on video chat with her friend I could easily have exceeded the chapter word count... once us women start nattering ...

Yes, I went to bed happy and woke up to "Oh no... we have a spanner in the works... LoL I am already plotting and scheming to overcome said spanner and Jim will receive a PM note shortly LoL "

I'm relieved one of us is the word accountant who keeps us both on track. :)
