I'd forgotten what this build up of a good chunk of words at a steady rate feels like. I have been writing a lot in my other life, yes, but not with nearly the same productivity. It occurs to me that I should, in future, be more careful about sticking to one project at a time, rather doing silly things life setting minuscule word counts for several projects. Much more really is getting done this way.
With this count, I have finished chapter 1. And now the more...enticing parts of the story are about to commence.
