The Words: 2195 total words, most of which was again done during 2 sprints with my daughter. And since I was close to 2000, I wrote a little more after she went to bed. I think I’m going to try to keep 2000 as my daily word goal for now, to try to avoid running out of story before the end of the month.
The Story: Most of today’s writing was from the POV of the antagonist, a perspective I added since the first attempt at drafting this novel. I initially didn’t intend for it to remain part of the story, but figured it would help to write it so I could better understand how the intricacies of the plot fit together. But the more I write of it the more it feels like part of the story, so we’ll have to see how it turns out. Besides, without it, the draft might be a little too short.
Total word count: 31,442
