Daily Writing Check-in: May 16, 2019

Words/Time:  25 minutes doing preliminary work for the new outline of “Protector”.

Compared to how the rest of this month went, today was a very short day. I didn’t get to my writing time until 11 pm, so even though I was enjoying today’s work, it just had to be a short day.

I’m starting this task the same way I did the last 2 on my list of writing goals–reading the first draft so that it’s fresh in my mind. This one is already the freshest, since I wrote it during NaNoWriMo last year. Add to that the fact that I’ve read different parts of it here and there in the time since then, and it’s the freshest in my mind of all of the stories I’ve worked with this year. However, I know there are plenty of scenes that I hadn’t planned in advance that I will need a reminder on, so I might as well read it all the way through.
