Day 8

In spite of many other distractions and obligations today, managed to finish second story. The morning was very slow, less than 500 words, as I had to go back and insert a key missing scene to make the story work. But that meant breaking up an existing flow, which I always find hard. And the scene was a hard one to convey.

The evening session, while shorter in length, was very productive and I finished the story with a nice twist and a good last line (I hope.) I am well pleased with the story, though only a first draft.

I am now at 10,880 words. 22% to target, but 26% of my time gone. And I am likely to have no opportunity to write on the long weekend, so I'm worried I am falling behind.
