Is the novel back on track? NO. But am I up to speed? YES.
Of course, I know I’ll lose more days, so really, to finish, I’m going to need to do even more than the—hork!—2750 words per day that my spreadsheet predicts I’ll need to do to get back on track.
But I’ve gotten a much better groove, the story is starting to dovetail nicely, and some sections which felt out of place have, after a few moves, found a nice home in the story.
The rocket is taking off, but there’s a long climb ahead.
Back to it.
