So far I've written about 400 words, which isn't too bad, although it seems to be very slow.

This should be a moment of high conflict in the story. It's not. The feeling just isn't there, even though the mechanics of the scene is right. I can't tell if I'm just not inspired and need to rethink the entire scene, or if I'm just tired (about three hours sleep), and it will look better later. It may also just be a need to spice up the words some, and that will come in the revision.

So, I guess the best I can do is move on with it. Like all first drafts for me, I won't know if it's working until the rewrite.
