We’re in this for the long haul, folks.
The first chapter of the second draft is complete!
I am secretly happy with my progress so far, actually. (Don’t tell my inner critic.)
I won’t have a word count for you this week (or perhaps not for another month or so) because I have scrapped my first draft and am addressing some necessary issues before I tackle the second draft.
Despite the difficult past two weeks, I made considerable progress. I am working on Chapter 34 and hope to finish it by Saturday.
I’ve finally hit a tipping point in the plot that will hopefully propel me toward the climax. Writing the middle of a novel is hard.
