Total words: 4634
Time spent writing: 1 hour, 45 minutes.
Favourite line: No one was ready to know that creatures of myth and legend walked among them. That some of them hunted humanity, for food or for sport. No one was ready to be that afraid of the dark.
Lessons Learned: This gets easier, unsurprisingly. Characters do start to form. Exploring history is good, even if it has to happen in the middle of a chapter. It builds context and creates an opportunity for callbacks. Also, I definitely started this story in the middle.
Conclusions: Keep writing. Some of this may not be garbage. Also, you can write two thousand words in under two hours, and it makes you happy.
