Draft Days

The general plot and character outlines are done, and this week I started the first draft of my new project. I'm using a spreadsheet to track my progress, which I'm hoping will help me push past that tendency to go back and edit what I have rather than moving forward.

The opening scene was rough until I realized that it was better as backstory. That new starting point may not survive the second draft, but it feels way more natural. It also comes with a first line that makes me happy.
