I now have three full chapters and two "chorus" sections of the Faerie Story restart. I have posted them to my facebook group for Betas, but should probably ping a few people who aren't there as well. If you want to volunteer to read them, drop me a note with your email address and I'll happily share it in exchange for honest feedback.

I stand now at 7607 words. It's hard to say what point of the original I'm up to. I added some stuff, including an entire chapter focusing on a character who wasn't in previous versions, but I also cut a bunch. I realized there was a lot in the early chapters that really could be cut, so I've cut it. I am around were I was at the 10688 in the last draft, but I have skipped introducing someone I want introduced, so one of those scenes is going to get added.

In other news... My house is still full of people all day! It adds challenge to the whole getting-into-a-writing-headspace thing. I think having a big project to focus on is going to help me, although I will need to be sure not to be too upset with myself over days when I don't get much if any work done.
