I’m in a “crunch phase” right now with the Gathering rewrite/revision/edit and reaching that 1 July deadline, so am keeping this post crisp and focused on a “just completed.”
At present, because of that “crunchiness” I am also in what I would call a “phony war” in terms of reducing the “total pages until completion.” Basically I am revamping a 2-3 chapter segment at the end of Part 4 of the book and until that process is complete—i.e., until the new chapters merge into the (old) chapter at the very end of Part 4, I can’t really physically cross off ‘pages complete’ in rewrite/revision terms. So that’s staying at the previous total until now.
What I can tell you is that since my last “Just Completed” on June 20 I have:
- reviewed and polished 15 pages of previously rewritten manuscript;
- written 3882 new words / 14 pages of completely new manuscript;
- completed 1 additional chapter and launched into the next; and
- Total Pages Until Completion [still stands at]: 104 plus Glossary.
If I were standing on a street corner with a placard at this juncture it would read: “Toot to show your support!” I will leave you free, however, to express your support—or otherwise!—in any way you choose.
