Progress post: Book 2, draft 3

I'm not going to have much in the way of writing updates for at least a couple of weeks, because I have copy editing to do now and will have to spend most of my writing time on edits, instead.

I'm still plugging away at the second book in the trilogy, and I just finished chapter 5.  I felt like I'd dropped into this rhythm of bringing characters in, two per section (one for each perspective character to meet), so I broke that pattern and had them encounter people for a second time who are important to the plot.  I read parts to Josh, my husband, and he laughed in all the right places.  This pleases me.

Currently, this draft is 16609 words.  The goal is about 100,000 words, but, as I am a pantster, that target is bound to shift.  I think it'll be shorter than that.  But then, I said the same thing about book 1, too.
