Sunday writing

Just finished about 700 words on the rewrite (second draft) of "Depression Baby".  Some of the time was spent cleaning up the first couple of scenes, which actually read better than I remembered them.  I’m breaking the longer scenes down into smaller segments because I think it helps with the pacing of the story.  Regardless, the story is going to likely grow in the revision, probably to somewhere around 5,000 words or so.

I’m going to aim for another hour of work on it tomorrow evening and see how far along that gets me.
