Novella

The novell still chugs along. I've rewritten one character's back story for the 5th or 6th time? I've lost count at this point. He's been arguing with me. It's taken a whole lot of dialog with him get to his character. I'm still not there.

Word count has pushed up towards 17k.

I think I am through the most awful chunk of rewriting. The first section had the most to rearrange. The second section is far more straightforward.

I may leave it at that rewrite. I don't believe that I will ever be beyond hating every word that I've written, even if I do occasionally like what I see.
