the morning writing report

750 words on "Salt, Milk, Blood, Tears" (alternate title "The Salt of Her Milk, The Blood of His Tears"), done in about 20 minutes because I was running a tad late.

Quick, yes, but most of those will need to be replaced. That's fine because this is the "exploratory" first draft, where I figure out what's going on. The next draft (likely an almost-from-ground-up-rewrite) will sharpen it up along with doing more character exploration.

The story's end is very close, in many ways. Hopefully tomorrow, because I have a rewrite request that's been mulling in my email and my brain that I need to get cooking on.

Yay, writing!
