Bittersweet Days

Last night, after staying up way too late, I managed to finish the first round of writing for Muddy Reflections. It is right around the 100k word mark (98k) and I think the story is pretty solid. I'm planning on going back and just verifying some fact-checking and maybe review the linking of the three parts to blend them more together, but at least I feel that relief of actually finishing it.

On the other hand, Dante made it really hard to leave work today. When I woke up, he followed me around the house. Every time I stopped, he would just lean against me and look up at me. No whimpering, no whining, just... looking. It was probably the hardest thing in the world to leave today, even with the crunch for TCC.

I'm not sure what to do.
