Draft 2: 216 out of 345 pages down. I have cut 10,262 words since I started.

Editing. Is. Driving. Me. Crazy.

I have sworn off writing anything new until I am done with this revision pass which includes incorporating Grammatically Correct Wife Unit’s editing suggestions. Why?

If I did not, I would never finish. It is not a painful process, more like jogging in the loose sand at the beach. A labor of love, if you will.

Except blogging of course, because I love my 7.3 readers!

    Them’s a lot of cut words 🙂 Well done! My Grammatically Correct Husband Unit’s editing suggestions are invaluable to me!
    Good luck with it. Great post!

    As .3 of those readers, I am happy to say that you are my hero, as you are the first person I know (online or off) to finish such a long piece. Please, please, please send some of that special love my way!

    Thank you Simonne!

    Nicole: I am a prolific writer, that is certain.

    Now if those words are readable, well, that is a different story all together!
