S&E Update

It's 6:00 Wednesday and I need to go out to a meeting at church tonight, so I don't know how much more I'll get done. Editing is going well:

Red-pen edits: 186/252 pages done
Computer edits: 90/252 pages done

You know what scares me now? When I don't see any red marks on a page. I look at it and say "Did I read this page? Why didn't I change anything?" On the other hand, there are pages, and in fact one whole chapter that I didn't make any changes to. I guess that could be looked at as a good sign. I've cut close to a thousand words from it by just tightening sentences and making the writing a little crisper, so right now it is coming in at about 76,990 words. I think, however, that there are some changes coming in the last few chapters that will push the total up a little bit as I smooth out a couple of transitions.

I'm eating shrimp cocktail for dinner tonight. High protein and low calorie. I know, I should eat some vegetables, too. I'll see if I can find some.
