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.
