And I've also passed the 100 page mark. I did have to drop back some a fix a glaring mistake, the kind I just can't let go, even in first draft because if I don't figure it out now, I'll remain confused for the rest of the book. Turned out I was able to fix it without too much disruption (almost had to cut over 1000 words, but saved them). All that and I still came close to 1500 words. How? I added an hour of writing time to my day. I'm experimenting with my time management, and if all goes as planned I'll have a new schedule with more writing time. With the new schedule I just might finish the first draft before Christmas, as I'd originally wanted.
