By the time you read this, I will be in the home stretch. All the meddling kid chapters will be completed, and we’ll be well into blowing stuff up. This thing is up to 115,000 words. The last draft was 104,000. I think I can safely say the first four drafts are developmental editing. Once this draft is put to bed, I’m going to have to accept what I’ve written and get into copy editing and line editing. I’m done adding. I will have to make cuts. I will have to address continuity errors. I will have to release this to betas.
It’ll be great to finally push this one to the next stage. It’s been a pain in the ass from the beginning.
