B&I rewrite, day three

The good news is, it's easy to trim, because I have become a much more efficient writer since 2003.

The bad news is, it needs a lot of trimming. *g*

150,575 words MS word count, but that's with some chunks cut out that I need to put back in in different places. And I have a bunch of expositional bits to add. Still.

I finished typed revisions to chapter 2, and have commenced Chapter 3. Am on page 41 of a current 647, with 170 pages hand-corrected and a bunch of add-ins in a notebook and other files.

Excelsior!

Maybe you need a wordcount bar that shows the overflow going down to the goal. ;-)
It's knowledge of process, isn't it. Having done this before, you have a better sense of process. (As well as general writer improvement)

Thanks again for allowing me to fill a good chunk of your time at Uncle Hugo's. :Grin:

And you will have to tell me where and What you and your friends chose for dinner! (I might want to go there myself after all)

Panels? Parties?

You wrote:
I'm not much of a panel-goer or party crawler, you see: I go to cons mostly to see people I don't get to see usually.
BUT
You're in a bar waiting for a panel. Hmmm.
I hope the trimming/editing continues well,

It's a panel I'm on. *g*
