Chapter 1 is done! It might actually become a prologue during the post-November editing cycle. But it’s [checking] 2979 words making up 9 pages.
Prior to this, the longest any “novel” of mine has been is about 20 pages. THe problem is that I would go back and edit and second guess and just start to hate what I’d written. With this book, I try to stop in the middle of a sentence so I can force myself to start writing again, if only to finish the sentence. And I don’t read any further back than 2 pages when starting up. It’s working for me so far.
