Writing progress

Story Title: A Necessary Evil
Words revised and added to draft today: 2211
Words now in Chapter 1: 5493

Reason for stopping: End of chapter 1 and time to get ready to go to work.
Mean things done to characters: Monsters and a poisoned bite.

Very soon we're going to hit the dodgy parts where whole scenes will need scrapping and replacing.
