Total word count: 7371 Wow. I added quite a few words today. 1469 to be exact. Good for me! (yep, I'm patting myself on the back right now) This word count brings me to the end of Chapter Two. I managed to introduce the MC and one of the lesser antagonists--at least I think he's going to remain a lesser antagonist. Sometimes these things morph out of my control. But he seems like a sleezeball to me. Sneaky, underhanded, manipulative, and very determined to get what he wants. My MC on the other hand is momentarily defeated--emotionally. I need to have her rally in the next chapter.
