Still writing away, a little bit each morning. This week I spent three days on a single scene. It was a scene I had sort of outlined, and yet the first day I spent on it, I wrote it without taking into account the realities of the story I'd written so far. I realized that, and rewrote it the next day, and then realized later that day I'd *still* written it wrong. So I rewrote it again the following morning.

Now, I do try to live by the motto that editing during the first draft is something to be avoided, but sometimes, you just have to get an initial scene right to move on with the story. So I think it was time well spent.
