Almost Drafted

Eye is much better, though I'm going to hold off until Tuesday to jump back on the treadmill (margin of error and all). I wrote sixteen pages today, which is phenomenal for me, and I'm up to 18,885 words, having also cut a lot. The manuscript has a beginning, a middle, and an end.

It's arguably the second first draft. I'm not letting myself off quite that easily, though. The next time I sit down, I'm going to study the six scenes, which are outlined, that I skipped. I'll decide whether I really need to do more pre-writing before tackling them. That in mind, I'll dive into what I can and then set the mss aside to work more on character development and world building.

Thanks to AS for her amazing e-card!
