The good news is I'm finally past the breakfast table in Chapter Seven.
It's in final draft.
That was a really hard scene.
I'm not sure I have it right even now.
I just know that I've got past it and I'm still alive and I will hope the reader doesn't die of bordeom over the crumpets and tea.
The bad news is I'm way behind in my word count if I expect to get this done by October 1.
The good news is that I have a fairly easy stretch to get through next, which should generate lots of happy words.
22,019 / 120,000
JESSAMYN word count on rough draft
34 / 123
Days till deadline
(edited to add --- When this was happening, I kept track of the process day by day. A year later, I went back and pulled all that dullness out. You don't have to go through every inch of the plod and niggle. Lucky you.)
