Today I have reached the 30 page milestone!
That makes it about 16 thousand words, just a little more. So far, I haven't had any major writer's block, thankfully. The March break gave me a chance to make some solid changes to the original plot line and really get the project working, but I plan to work on the novel a bit every day even when classes start again.
While editing the first chapter, I did notice a huge mistake of mine: I mention at one point that Selena has lost a finger in a past explosion, but never do I mention it in other places. I will either remove the loss of the finger or go add some references to this handicap in some parts of the novel.
