post revision distractions

My revised manuscript has been out of my hands for a week and I don't expect anything back until the end of this week. And...I think I've finally run out of things to keep my mind occupied.


Final first revision stats:

Original wordcount 41,700

Removed from original wc 12,544

Final wordcount 59,028

Total new words written 29,872


Original chapters removed 3

New chapters written 4

Characters cut 6

I am so happy with the changes! Because of them, though, I had to revise my synopsis, query, and pitch. Once I get the revision edits back, I'll send these off the Gail for review as soon as she's ready for them.


In the meantime, I'm going to be very optimistic and start plotting other books in this series.
