Random Thoughts:
- Today's words are a pretty good indicator of my writing weaknesses
- I need to read less David Weber and GRRM.  I'm getting too much inspiration for political maneuvering that I can't write
- I'm not love this story right now, hopefully that will change when I get to switch POVs in a few days
- Occasionally I end up with snippy social commentary in my writing that will probably get cut in December

Small Snippet of Novel:
        Half an hour later, the Senators exited the train into the Guard Station entering the White Sector. There they were briefly searched again before there entrance into the White Sector was allowed. Even though the buildings had the same general appearance, being made from the same materials and similar design features, the White Sector engendered a sense of awe and inspiration in Victor Steinwick. Walking these corridors made him feel so close to his goals. A small stumble reminded him of all the obstacles between him and his ambitions. He only had so much time before his own body would be the biggest thing in his way. No one would elect a President with a failing body and dwindling mental capabilities. Although it was possible that he was giving the citizens too much credit for common sense.

  1. Great progress so far! Just get it down on paper. Realistically I will probably write most of December, possibly January, to finish the first draft. Shooting for closer to 90k words than 50k when finished. Then a month away from it before I go through for a first rewrite. Just keep plugging away. If you get bored jump ahead and write a scene you're looking forward to, helps me keep the word count moving.
