I finished the first draft of Part Two! Hooray! Now to finish Part Four (it’s probably about halfway there, or at least it’s about 35K words, which tends to be around half a first draft for me these days).

I joined up an online critique group to get some feedback on Part One as I get ready to start the second draft. I’ve gotten some helpful notes, so it’s going alright. One thing I probably need to do for the second draft is cut a lot of words (it’s just under 100K right now, which…is too much), and the ladies in my group have, without knowing it, shown me some great spots to cut to make the story better.

So progress continues!
