The first sentence I wrote yesterday…

Emily woke to the faint brightening of the cabin that signaled morning in the Free Republic, and for a moment wondered where she was; then smiled as she remembered.

Words yesterday: 2,414
Total words (more or less): 61,509
Percentage complete: 51.3

It’s all downhill from here!

And again, I suspect I’m going to come in closer to 100,000 than 120,000 on this first draft, so I’m probably more like 60 percent of the way to completion…and then, of course, rewriting.

Heavily.
