Ok, days of neurosis behind me. Today, I start to write again.
My goal for today is a brand new scene for the third chapter that my shiny rewrite seems to call for. So I'm gonna think of things I never thunk before.
Right now, I sit about 6,000 words into the rewrite. Doesn't sound like much, when I look at the 78,000 words I got into the original version. But I think they're better words, if nothing else, and I'm hoping that a lot of the later chapters will still work as already written, with some minor cosmetic editing.
