Château Soleil Update 12: Morning Writing

Current word count: 120,014
Chapters done: 36/52
Projected length: 173,354 words

Almost all progress since the last update has been made in the last week and a half. I decided to take a cue from a friend and wake up early to do my writing instead of trying to stay up late. I'd resisted this in the past, because I'd rather not be working against a hard cut-off (I can stay up later, but I need to get to work on time). The problem is that I just haven't had any words in me in the evenings.

So on a lark I started setting the alarm clock for 5am and trying to get an hour of writing done before the boys get up. And so far, so good. Let's see if I can keep this up.
