Still chipping away at it I see.

I did get five good paragraphs written only to realize I was providing too much explanation on something that didn't add to the story, though it did help fill in the nature of the civilization.  Hopefully I can get it down to a couple paragraphs.

That's been part of the problem this last year or so. I start writing away without regard to the pace or story line since I'm having so much trouble keeping it all in my head.   


Yeah that show not tell part is key.  Its also hard to do.  as an author you've got this mental image of the story and you want to tell it properly.  So when you come to certain points you want to let everyone know what's going on.  yet those very long info dumps are exactly what turn off readers the most.  All we can do is learn and try to weave the info in as organically as possible.

I got a couple of paragraphs done. It's not much but it is something.

It was 2k day yesterday and while I'd always 'like' to write faster.  two k a day will get my books over the finish line in satisfactory time.  At that pace I should be able to do 4 books this year.  That's my goal at least.
