Progress is made! I don't know how, but it has been. Alas, the word count is mostly the same. Right now about 68K of the 78K I have written is first draft solid. I'm still adding stuff in, and as I do, some of what's already been written is becoming obsolete, so while I add, the word count doesn't go up--which is quite interesting, because I've been thinking that this manuscript was going to be a monster that I'd have to trim down. Hmmm...maybe this is the trimming I won't need later?? I'm not making much sense, but I know what I mean.
At this point, giving snippets spoils too much of the story, so I am afraid I'll have to stop doing that. Pooh--I really liked those snippets. One that I particularly liked has now been cut! But it's all for the best. I have a habit of giving relief to my characters before it's time, and end up having to take it away again. I suppose that satisfies my need to toss them a little bone. Thankfully, I come to my senses and let the trouble vex them a while longer.
Have a great weekend!
