Words/Time: 45 minutes, revising “Pithea.” I worked mostly on a section of exposition that comes between parts 3 and 4. It was a little messy. Then I worked on organizing the beginning of part 4, which is also more exposition than narration. Many important events happen over the course of about a year, but they don’t get much explanation each. It’s also kind of messy, so I’m trying to sort it out and make it flow more smoothly.
It was a slow start to my writer’s retreat, but so far, I’ve just been enjoying the quiet. I’ll be up late tonight, and do some more work in short bursts, most likely. Then there’s all day tomorrow.
