WIP update

Some progress made this weekend. I'm still in the middle of Chapter 6 but I passed 10,000 words. There are tens of thousands of more to go for draft one but it still feels nice to hit that number.

Once I finish this chapter I can then dive into the 7100 pages from a much earlier incarnation of this story and figure out how to re-work them to fit this WIP. It will be interesting since I will have to take the events I wrote a long time ago and tell them in reverse order from how they originally appeared.

Anyway, progress meters can be cool sometimes. I figured I would post mine.

It's a start. I still have the giant hurdle of nailing down my main female protagonist's personality, but I'm hopeful I will figure it out.
