Writing progress

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

Other than adding a couple of sentences and replacing a few words in the new opening scene, this was mostly just a case of reading through and deciding that it's OK. In fact this is where I have to guard against thinking, "Oooo! This is so easy! I'll have the whole novel polished off in a few weeks at this rate."

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