And now it's time for my 1:30-ish check in.

I've edited 4 more pages (which doesn't sound like a lot) but it's all new material since I cut out a huge chunk of one chapter.

The numbers stand thusly:

Edited: 83 of 265 pages.

I'm still going strong!

It's the 3:30-ish check in!

I'm completely excited because I've hit that golden number that I was aiming for! Yay!


I'm excited! See! Excitement! With exclamation points! Lots of them!

Total pages edited: 86 of 269

As you can see, they manuscript is getting longer. I do figure that I'll cut out some of the later stuff when I'm going through it simply because with the changes and additions I'm making now, the later stuff won't fit into the timeline quite right.

So, yeah.
The Epic Werewolf Masterpiece #1 is currently standing at 108,134 words.

I'm off to shower now so I don't have epic bedhead when I go to sleep later.

I'm always thinking ahead, aren't I?

I wasn't going to post this evening since I posted a couple of times early early this morning but I wrote after those posts and I'm excited that I have word countage to report. Yay!

Although I'm editing, I'm adding so much new narrative that it's changing the entire complexion of the story. In a good way, I hope. The original time line, from beginning to end, took place over the course of a month. I had to squeeze in way too much stuff and when I went back and reread it it wasn't believable that everything that was happening would happen over such a sort range of time. So I'm taking my girl out of the hero's bedroom (TEMPORARILY!) and giving her time to settle into her new life with a pack of werewolves. She's a mess. I couldn't justify her character changing from a girl who had been repeatedly abused to trusting those around her without reservation so quickly. Now she's getting the time to learn that not everyone she meets wants to hurt her. That said, I do get to throw a jealous female tiff that I had originally plotted back into the mix because now that my girl is not directly under the protection of the big, bad werewolf she's a little more vulnerable to petty hatred.

This excites me, guys!

I ended up adding 916 words today, putting my total at 109,118.

This is especially thrilling because I was doing some crazy sleeping today. I went to bed at 5:30 after dropping Heather and Hailey off at the airport, slept until 10-ish, got up and did some stuff (including a bit of writing) and took a nap from 2:30 to 5. I think I got more sleep staying up all night last night than I normally get. That amuses me.

I also read a book.
Book #278 - Katie's Hellion (Rhyn Trilogy #1) by Lizzy Ford - I was honestly surprised by how much I liked this book. I went into with no expectations and thought it was oodles of fun. OODLES!

I decided that I am going to the book signing tomorrow. After rereading the synopsis for book 1 of The Parasol Protectorate I really wanted to read the book. So, I'm going. I won't even mention how shitty I think it is to tell someone what type of books that can or can't buy.

Okay. I'm done.
