Almost At the Half-Way Point!

After a slow start, I've picked up a bit of momentum with the JASPER rewrite. I'm now up to 26,700+ words. I've finished 18 chapters. When I finish chapters 19 and 20, then I'll be at the half-way point. It's getting easier to write, the farther I get into it. I've stuck entirely to the plan.

The rewrite has already shown me a few weak points, issues I thought I had pinned down in the planning that preceded this draft. Nothing too major that I can't readily fix it in the next draft or in the editing. Overall, the plot framework is solid. Any changes will be made within the existing framework.

It's nice to be making progress!

Coffee cup salute to you on your progress with JASPER.
Your comment about my reading list gave me a chuckle; I too think several books ahead, but there's so many books that I've missed reading over the years, I decided to systemize it. This makes for a bit of craziness as I'll be reading a book from the list and in between I'll be reading a couple others on impulse. Well what can you do...if I'm breathing, I'm reading. d:)

Hi Adrian, things are settling down for me so I should be making some new progress on Shadow too.
I'm looking forward to the holidays over christmas til mid January when classes start up again. It's nice to have some time to relax.
