Accomplished in fiction: Splashdown. The team took a nosedive and came up for air in the arms of an ally from earlier in the story. A bit of the old quid pro quo.
Accomplished in life: Party cleanup. Put the yard back together, watered the beds, did some dishes and a spot of laundering.
Other: As I mentioned yesterday, I’m coming up on the end of the story but it wants to be longer than I want it to be. I did some finessing today and basically figured out how to tighten it up a little. Yay for flexibility.
