I"ve gotten more done today than I have in a long time. I'm fairly happy with the first 40 pages (as a rough first draft). This has been the hardest part - hammering out the beginning. Still needs work, but at least I can move on to the next section. I have a better vision for what is coming up - it's not going to be easy to modify and mold the next 200 typed pages, but I have a goal in mind that I am going to be striving to meet.
