A book in a month: Day 3

Word Count: 2309

Good grief, it's even worse than yesterday.  Much too low a word count, though I hope to get a little more time later this evening.

One of the advantages of this book in a month exercise is that there isn't the time to go back and do any rewriting.  It's a good thing because I've come to hate what I've written and I want to completely change the setting and the characters to make it more dramatic and faster paced.  Now it feels like a thick block of exposition that I have to get through before the story really gets started.  In normal circumstances, I'd be back to square one, but now I haven't the luxury, so I just make a note of how I want to revise it and carry on.
