Okay, here's the deal. I have ten pages of original manuscript left. These are about 300-500 words each, depending on how is dialogue. That means only about 5,000 more words, right? I can do that.
So I am going to finish this run through Dacey's Dream today. I'm close. This is by no means the end of the rewrite... this is just culling all I can from the original manuscript before I go in and do new chapters and such.
My starting count is 41213. All of that has been written in July, by the way, so I'm not doing as badly as I thought. I can get through this.
