Back from a nice vacation with the wife. Picked up the pups yesterday, glad to see them, and was back at the nine-to-five this morning. Got another chapter finished today, chapter 22, words up to 55,322 now. Some good dialog in this chapter, really happy with it. I had to delete a bit of what I wrote, didn’t like some of the exchange but I nailed it on the third pass.
With ending this chapter I figure I’m moving into act three of the story. Lots more action coming. I’m hoping to have the novel’s first draft wrapped up before Christmas, probably in the first weeks of December. Then it’s on to revising and rereading! Yay!
