A decent writing session

I wrote part 8 of “The Graveyard Shift” tonight, about 1,100 words in 50 minutes or so. This was good because part 7 is about the halfway point of the story and I was not sure going into that section exactly what was going to happen. (I always know how the story is going to end, and in the case of this story, I actually did an outline for the first time ever. But sometimes the story has a way of taking its own leash and I’m not following the outline exactly as I’d planned it.)

As it stands now, the story is 7,100 words long.

I expect to tackle section 8 (the end of Part II) on the Acela up to New York tomorrow.
