Ten pages, and lost 34 words. Believe me, considering the amount of cutting and rewriting I'm doing, I was surprised to find I hadn't lost far more.

I think the first chapters are finally coming together, though. The intro seems fine, the first chapter still giving me some fits. But I'm getting there. As soon as I get the 30 pages edited, I'll move off to something else for a little while. I might go back to it later, but I discovered something about the way I edit in the last couple books -- If I try to push straight through on something, I'm more likely to rush it, to overlook things, and to get pieces wrong. Editing 30 pages at a shot isn't so much that I feel the need to get it done too quickly.

I think this will work...
