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.
