to end and begin

So I write.  I write  200 antiwords, 700 words on the new pass.  AND at 24,700 words, this draft is done!  Woot!

And so I think, what should I write while that sits on the backburner for the pass for grammar and things?

So the muse says, remember that idea you left out?  It's true, and it's going to be in her great-grandson's day.  Outline another story!

It does seem to come together nicely.  And it does distract.
