I numbered the chapters this week - always a big milestone for me and a sign that the end is kinda sorta almost near. And by "the end", I mean the beginning of the first rewrite. :-) Woo hoo!

I also named the chapters in this book, which is a first. Well, I used the days of the weeks as chapter titles in HEAVENLY MOVES (which takes place over the course of 13 days in July 1982), but those were more "markers" than true chapter names. To me, at least. We'll see if these post-apocalyptic chapter names stick.
