Day 3

Day three and the word count right now is 6113, I'm still having some missteps along the way, but I feel confident that I am accomplishing my main goal with my rough draft which is to get the story told, the next draft will be about telling it better.

Some technical difficulties with doing a draft this way, hard to do chapter breaks, hard to make notes to yourself, though I will start using color so I can make sure I am remembering all the places where research will be needed, and where consistency is key.

Listening to the Sentence CD to help me remember some style points, and also reading from my literary bible, Barbara Kingslover, not to copy but to remind me of how beautiful and simple literature can be.
