Still on the Cut

I am about half way through on the cut review. I have already cut out about 71,000 words.

It is getting tougher now to trim.

My goal was to get to 105,000 words. It has been recommended to me that it was a good length for a first novel I have been told by published authors.

A big problem is that I keep adding text in the revision. I love some of these chapters and I feel that I am too close to them.

Steven King said that after his first draft was done he would put the draft away and move to his next project and come back to it months later for the edit and revision. I might do that eventually after this trilogy.

--Back to work.
