Third draft update

For the last five days, I've been productive*. I've successfully relocated a scene that was giving me trouble, and was able to move forward.

Into Chapter 3.

Hey, don't look at me like that. Chapter 2 had an important scene, but it just wasn't working. Admittedly it took a few months to come up with a solution, but I got there. That's the process of writing -- some things work out naturally in a matter of days, others take months.

But on the bright side, I'm onto Chapter 3 of the third draft, and should hopefully finish it up today. I may even put up a comparison of drafts, just to show the amount of work that goes into certain sections.

Anyway, back to work. Catch you folks next update :)

* I attribute it to the psychological effects of the upcoming NaNoWriMo, not necessarily the caffeine purge**
** Three weeks soda sober today!***
*** I've been reading lots of Terry Pratchett.
