Seventy Days of Sweat Update - Week Three

I don't have too much to show for this week. The Halloween Fiction Carnival took up a fair chunk of my time mid-week, and I also made the not-so-surprising discovery that I was starting my novel in the wrong place.

Now that I'm starting where I should've started before, a lot of things that felt like just a bunch of unconnected events make much more sense. Oddly, I knew ahead of time what would happen, just not the why. Now that I'm not mucking around in prologue-y stuff, things are flowing nicely.

I'm looking forward to a good week of writing!

I hope I didn't imply any regrets! I had a great time putting it together and seeing such an enthusiastic response!

I hate it when I start in the wrong place. Luckily, most of the time I only have to move it a scene or two.
