Book Update for you. Yes, YOU.

First, lets start with a cute picture. Thats always fun. It was a hot day and the kid had some awesome hair going on.

And now for the update. I've finished 4 chapters. I keep wanting to say 5 since I just started the 5th, but alas I'm at 4. I have no clue what this means, if anything, but I'm at 16,000 words. And I have 16 chapters to go. Yikes. That's a lot of wordage. Is 4,000 words per chapter, on average, too much? I'm worried I'm giving too much detail but at the same time I don't want to leave out anything important. Everything that happened is important. Its all part of where I am now.
I feel confident that with some time commitment from Jason that I can knock out a few more chapters in the coming week and a half. Then I have a long weekend and am committed to writing for most of it. I'm hoping to be through Chapter 9 by early September.
I'm doing some editing as I got, but I want to get as much down as I can before I go back through and edit/revise what I have so far. I'm sure many changes will come but I want to get the first draft done before I try to make it awesome(r).
