The rewrite has begun.

I started rewriting the book yesterday. The goal is to finish the second draft by the end of the month...or at least hit 50k. I'm at 6,000 words right now, so the latter goal is doable. If this draft is going to be the same length as the first draft, I'm behind. I'm not sure how long it's going to be, though. It may be a little shorter.

The writing is going slowly... well, slowly for me. Two and a half hours to write 3,000 words? You're killing me, self. I know this is just a little slower my typical non-word war rate, but still. I don't expect 3000 words an hour; I am paying more attention to the role of each scene, even if the prose is still crap at this point.

Clearly word wars have spoiled me.

Also, last night I dreamed that people on the friends list had sock accounts to talk about me behind my back. It was interesting.

Good luck on the rewrite! I'm still slogging my way through trying to add the scenes that didn't seem necessary in the first draft, but on re-read have become glaringly obvious in their absence.

lol. That's gobs better than my normal typing speed and miles away from my editing speed. Can I borrow some of yours? :)

But if you borrow some of it, I'll type even more slowly. Maybe we should multiply it.

Good luck with your editing. I'll see those scenes when I finish this draft.
