    Now three chapters in, and with some venue changes as well to keep the plot firmed up. Had to set aside a chapter's worth of writing, but this is par for the course when you realize something's not working. Other than that, I try not to look back too much. First drafts are sort of like being chased by zombies in that way.

    It happened - the first character driven plot change. This is something I would expect on the second draft, but lo and behold there is going to be a much deeper romantic arc to this novel than anticipated as a certain fiance has had enough of my main character's mindset by chapter six. I love it when characters make mistakes - especially Mikial. This one she will sorely regret. Wish I could say more, but spoilers are spoilers.

    Just passed the 60k mark with the first draft. This is significant as my last novel's first draft only made it this far - promising a much larger work this time. In other news, the story arc has enjoyed yet another tilt - a very dark one this time as my main character is in a long slide toward a much-feared version of herself.
