B3 Update

Finished chapter 7 of The Boomer Sisters In The City this morning. I'm up to 11,000 words now.

I tried to find a good, short excerpt to post here this morning, but couldn't. Every scene I considered using was either too long, required too much explanation and setup, or didn't come to a snappy ending.

Is that a bad sign? Maybe it's alright. It is a novel, after all, not a collection of sound bites. The scenes aren't designed to stand alone - they are part of a larger whole. And I haven't gone back through to edit, polish, tweak and tighten the text yet. Maybe I'll find a good excerpt once I've done that. But I'll have plenty of time to do my editing once the first draft is complete - on 30 June!
