Writers Process - New Trick

I'm pretty optimistic here, but my countdown experiment worked and it might work again.  So a little background - I began the process of writing a first draft of 'Open Water' by labelling my document Open Water 10.  The next day I titled my work Open Water 9.  The idea was that I would countdown to a finished first draft.  Voila - today I will be viewing my Open Water 1 and declaring it finished. 

FYI - finished in this case means the first draft.  I will then move to another project and Open Water will be returned to at some unspecified time in the future, likely when I am doing revision work. 

Once I have a name and a sketch of my new story I think I will try this countdown approach again.  It might work twice!
