Blew a rare chance to get a really early start today but recovered well enough to get about 4 hours of writing in, starting in earnest around 10 am.
Did a little tidying up at the end of what is now Chapter 9. Roughly 300 words and the first draft of this chapter is mostly complete. First part of chapter now split into its own chapter. Each one is a bit shorter than average right now.
Then wrote the first draft of Chapter 17(!) That's right, I jumped ahead eight chapters to write a scene that I felt ready to write. The rough draft of this chapter is done and it is roughly 3410 words, for a daily total of about 3700 words.
No real new observations on the writing process for today.
