What are some of the most interesting discoveries you've made working on this project?

Tell us what you discovered about yourself through this project!

The chapters that I wrote in this cycle were the last of the chapters that I needed to rewrite (I had written several chapters in the book a few years ago, and the plot has changed significantly since then, so I had to rewrite them). I really enjoyed getting to expand the chapters and add new scenes and details to hint at later plot developments.

What extra resources would be helpful for this project in the future?

šŸŒ¹ What did you enjoy most about this project? šŸ„€ What didn't go well in this project? šŸŒ± What will you do differently next time?

This cycle was the first that I was able to devote long periods of time to writing each day, and I loved being able to get immersed in the story.
I had some writer's block while in the middle of writing chapter 5, and it set me back about a week. Ultimately, I had to pause on that chapter and move on.
In the future, if I have difficulty writing a chapter, I'm going to move on right away, and then return to it later, to minimize the time lost.
