I met my chapter goal for the month today. It was exhausting and took me 8+ hours, but I did it. I’m up to the mid-point in my book where I just don’t even want to look at the thing anymore, so I’m going to scrap my 5 character goal. I think I’ll leave the character chart for my break between the first draft and the second. I’m still trying to decide how long that break should be, though, to be honest. What do you guys suggest for the downtime between drafts?
