An Easier-Than-Expected Day on Ohio #2

I’d written a small chunk of an earlier version of this first draft that mostly didn’t work, so I bailed on it partway though and started again, moving from Apple Pages back to Scrivener at the same time.

Today, I hit the point where I was able to reuse a good piece of what I’d written that first time through — the scene, in fact, that made me realize I’d missed the best conflict in the book in that first start.

So today, with some heavy editing, I managed to save the scene that gave me that “best conflict” realization.

And came out ahead on my words, with 2563 for the day, and a manuscript count of 52,963.

Happy with that, I’m now catching up with other work.

Ah, and that’s how you make up the word count from days where you have to scrap much of what you’ve written! It’s funny how the Muse can give you something that you don’t know you’ll need until later. Congratulations on the doubled-up word count!

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
