Tougher day than expected: 1106 words, a bit of ripping out… and the whiff of “big bad”

I always start my words by reading through what I wrote the day before, and fixing a few typos, and getting myself back into the voice of the book — 

And I discovered I’d been redundant yesterday, repeating a fair amount of material across a break between two chapters. 

So I started out the morning my losing a bunch of words, then writing my ass off, and not quite hitting my daily objective, in spite of most certainly having written enough words to have done so.

But these are the breaks. Some days, you run out of time and discover you’ve come up a bit short.

I still love what I got — and bad, bad things are definitely in motion for my MC and her friends.

Somebody else might end up on the slab tomorrow…
