Writing today: I scrapped about 1500 words and rewrote them. I also added 3,500 words, bringing my total word count for today to 20,168. I might try to break 20,500, but frankly I think I’m done for the day. I need to look at something else besides the computer screen on my Mac. In essence, I need to give my brain a chance to replenish its creativity before I go back in for the 2500 words or so that I need to write on tomorrow and Friday — plus whatever sections I feel need re-writing.
And there are a lot of sections in need of rewriting. Currently, I have almost 6,000 words in a section I’d budgeted 4,500 for, and 3000 words in a section I’d budgeted 2000 for, and I need those 2,500 words or so elsewhere. So that’s going to take some doing. I also need to change the historical context somewhat, and mess around with the alliance, and write descriptions of the cities I’m supposed to cover.
Other than that, though — Progress!
