I mentioned that I would update how my writing has been progressing since that writer’s conference.  I’m happy to say that I’ve been able to keep mostly on track with 700 words per day.  The last few days, though, I really haven’t done writing per se, but more along the lines of editing sections to get them ready for critiquing.  If it ends up adding to the word count, I’m all for it!  🙂

The biggest change is that I needed to dumb down a character.  Meaning, the character could read, but not write or is familiar with math (or ciphers as he calls them).  But he gets promoted to a very important position, so all is good.  😉
