Reverse Vacation: Day 1

So far the reverse vacation is going well. I got to Mom's house early in the morning and got to work. By lunch I'd gotten the first three chapters polished. I got chapter four polished, figured out how I'm going to rearrange the remainder of the novel, and rewrote about 90% of chapter five by the end of the day.

The rearranging is extensive. The last draft had forty-two chapters, and upon rereading, I found I could consolidate several of them. For example, chapters five, six, and eight of the last draft are now chapter five, and chapters seven, nine, and ten will be chapter six by the end of tomorrow.

I'm so excited.
