Mostly drafting

I wrote about 1,200 new words today, so it was like old time a little bit. But in a way that feels like part of the problem. It feels like I keep writing the same scene over and over. It's in different settings, and it's fun to come up with the details, but I don't feel like I'm advancing my characters. They just keep having the same fights. That's the problem with the existing draft, and when I do some new writing I just seem to keep layering on more of the same.

I'm getting this sensation more and more that I need a really big rethink of the book and how it develops. It's a dreadful feeling.
