Grind grind grind

I got a little over a thousand words so far today, and I do plan to come back and give it another bash after dinner. But I cannot get this damned thing out of first gear this week.

The good news is I managed to cut 200 words from my hook, and make it better and tighter and shinier. And I figured out why the scene I wrote last night sucked so badly, and I fixed it (by puttin' back in the 200 words I cut this morning, in different places.)

My average words per day on SM since I started it on June 10th: 1647
Total words:174,377
Total manuscript pages: 771

Are we theerrrreeeee yet???
