Work done:  Some time spent transferring revisions from paper to computer. The rest was writing the sort of mini-plot I started a few days ago that isn’t for this novel. But I’m spending time on it anyway because I want to.

Work done:  Fourth meeting of the Tri-County Sisterhood of the Traveling Book. We got through 5 paragraphs, which seemed like a lot at the time, but I guess isn’t exactly flying. However, we made it through the rest of the exposition (besides the actual intro, which we skipped for now), so next time we’ll start on the action. I am hopeful that that will go more quickly, but I may be disappointed to discover that it’s no different. As much as I feel the three of us are making the story better, let’s face it, there are over 3000 paragraphs in the whole story. At the rate of 5 paragraphs per week, it will take us 11 years to go over the whole story. I just don’t know what to do about it.

Before the meeting, I also worked more on the storyline I started yesterday, which takes place after this book, but is just so badly needing to come out.
