Well today I spent some time backtracking in my novel and filling in some fine details such as the town my characters live in and some of the background of the town. I decided to set the town in Kansas, but came up with a fictional name that I’m not sure will stick, but for now it’s there. I’ve only lived in Kansas and to set it somewhere else at this point would require me to do some additional research and it’s easier to capture something I know than something foreign to me. So, that’s what I’m sticking to — at least for the moment.
I’m ahead of my word count again, I write a couple more hundred words a day more than needed — just in case I need them again as padding.
So, onward and upward!!
