A good start to the Iron Golem.  I promised myself 5000 words by next tuesday and I'm at almost 3000 so far.  Added to the little bits I'd done already that puts me into chapter three (plus the prologue).  Some of it has been hard going (lots of potentially interesting distractions) but I forced myself to keep going and I'm quite pleased with the results. 

Already totally off the reservation as far as the story plan goes, but that's not unusual.  The bits I've changed so far are the parts I thought needed to change even as I wrote the plan.  Lots of cool goodies in the coming chapters.  Looking forward to writing those.
