I was able to do some writing over the weekend. Finally did a fun section where the protag and antag meet for the first time and work out the deal that drives the remainder of the book.
Most importantly I redid the outline for the book. I feel much better about the beginning of the book. It starts slower but lays important groundwork without a bunch of backstory. I was asking too much of my reader in the previous version. The trick will be to establish a good pace early.
That’s about it.
Hope everyone is being productive and happy.
