Nine pages in (Project Novel)

Last night, I started Project Novel.
Initial blog conveniently located here.

When I went into the document, which I hadn’t been in since January of 2011, I was surprised to see that I had 22,000+ words already, so last night was pretty much just editing and some rewrites here and there. 
Plus, instead of my five-page-a-day goal, I edited nine and a half, which I was pretty stoked about.

I was excited to see that I had that many words, especially since there’s that “50,000 words in a month” novel-writing project I see on the Interweb – why, I’m nearly halfway there already!

I know the real work is on the horizon once I stop the editing and slight-rewrite process and get into the new writing to link the ending I want with where I stopped in the middle.

But until then, here’s a snippet from last night’s editing:

“I ran to the ladder that would take me up to the loft and looked back,
my foot on the first rung. I saw an arrow pierce through my father as he watched
me watch him begin to die.”
