Writing progress

Words today: 548
Reason for stopping: Need to set up stuff for the evening class.
Other: When I wrote the 5,300 word sprint for the end, most of it was fine, but the last 300 words or so came out as very dull telling. I was summarising lots of stuff in order to tie up a few loose ends because I'd forgotten that there was supposed to be one more short scene required before the epilogue. Today I managed to make use of the Before the Evening Class slot and made a start on the missing bit.

Telling is fine when it's done well. The telling I deleted was not done well and it much much better as a properly dramatised scene.
