What a week. Life is really kicking up the drama right now. Home life is just crazy. I am not even going to list all the stuff going on, because there is just too much.

Despite all that, I am still struggling with these revisions. I just completed Chapter 2 of Her Dangerous Promise, out of 15 chapters. (The last chapter is very short.) Chapter 2 was the longest original chapter, with Chapter 1 coming in second (19 and 18 pages, respectivly.) The majority of the remaining chapters are 14 pages long, with a few chapters having a page or two over or under that amount. I hope this means I will be able to move through those chapters a bit more quickly.

Happily, I again made my new word count, with over 200 words to spare. Again, I don't think I added anything that wasn't needed and I tried to make all the needed cuts without worring about the word count.

Editing Progress

I finished editing chapter 1, reaching the required word count.

I am now in the second section of chapter 2. I am setting a pace of 2 to 2 1/2 days per chapter. At that rate it will be done in a month.

Revision is torture! Almost as much as writing the first draft. It is getting easier as I settle into the process, though. I just handle the work one chapter - one section - one page - one paragrpah - one sentence at a time. And slowly I inch forward through the book.
