A few minutes ago I finished the edits suggested by my beta (test) reader, Lauri. With her help (and I actually cut more than she suggested), I’ve slashed the word count from 288,000 down to….

drum roll please….

217,600 words!!!!

That’s a grand total of over 70,000 words cut–the length of some novels. I’ve cut a novel out of my novel.

I haven’t yet reached my Seemingly Impossible Goal of 200,000 words. But I’m not by any means through editing this crazy big book. Just going to do a little adding for a bit, first.
