Do not ask me for a total word count because I don't know. And don't really want to. :P I'll work on trimming it down though during the edit, so I will most likely post "words cut" on the update filter. I pray I don't have to post a whole lot of "words added" updates, even though I do already have a whole chapter in mind that needs rewriting.
Anyhow, the plan is this:
Tonight: read last three chapters, make tweaks.
Tomorrow: Set ms aside for 2 wks, and work on another project.
April 7-25: Revise TDD
and then...My mother-in-law arrives for a visit. She'll be here from the 26 April to 15 May. I do still hope to get this draft edited and sent to interested parties *evil grin* by May 1st, but we'll see.
In the meantime, anyone want to share their full-manuscript editing techniques?
