Okay, the end of scheduled writing time. Serious reorganization, 716 new words. That doesn't seem like so much, not when I'm aiming for something closer to 120,000 words. Eep. But I have to tell myself that even if I only write 1000 words a day, that means finishing a draft in 120 days. Which is four months, which means I'd be done with this first draft by Christmas. So I just need to write a little more some days. I think I should be aiming for 2000 new words on the days I write. I can do that, I think, though I may have to ramp up to it a bit.
What I'm more worried about is a question of pacing. I'm actually about 20K words in, and I'm only just establishing the love relationship. For this book to work, I have to convince people that these people are actually in love, ideally by the end of the first quarter of the book. So in 10K more words, I need these people to be clearly deeply, hopelessly in love. Oof. I'm just going to go bang my head against a wall for a bit now.
Actually, it's 1, so I'm going to stop for today and go run errands. But there will be more writing tomorrow.
