My favorite part of every book

is when I get past page 300. Don't get me wrong - I love all of it, the plotting is huge fun, writing and learning the characters, rewriting and rewriting until it's just exactly as I want it (at least for that day), but there's an extra kind of magic for me once I hit page 300. I know the characters so well that my fingers on the keyboard can barely keep with the voices in my head.
Of course, voices in my head proves once again that being an author has distinct similarities with having any of several mental illnesses.
But I love it.
Oh, and butter Chessmen and mint Milanos help, too.
