I was cautiously optimistic concerning my ability to finish Background Pony over the weekend. The weekend, however, had other plans.
Between the snow melt flooding my basement and one of my water pipes bursting (giving the basement-flooding a handy assist), I didn't get a lot of reading done over the last few days. Oh, well.
Even so (or, as SS&E has an infuriating habit of writing, "even still"), I'm about 90% finished with the story. Granted, 10% of Background Pony is still equivalent to a small novel, but my review is definitely coming this week, barring interference by woodchippers, chainsaw-toting serial killers, or anything that could double as the title of a disaster movie.
Those of you playing the "read along at home" game can breath a sigh of relief; you've got a few days yet! And those of you playing the "hurry the heck up I want my review dangit" game can keep spasmodically twitching.
