Yesterday started slow, again. Then in the afternoon I got up a real head of steam. I think that 50% of that was that in the first part of the book I had more inserts, moves, changes to the plot/setup, etc. and so I think there was more ironing out needed. I think the other 50% was just willing myself to move through the editing more quickly. The moving more quickly bodes well for today, but I’m a little concerned that the end of the novel may get short-changed.
I needed to do 84 pages yesterday, I did 60. I feel confident I can do 60 today, my stretch goal is 80, and my fantasy goal is 100. I have 192 pages to go and two days. The simple math tells me that I need to get through 96 pages today and tomorrow to hit that!
I am already planning on working into the evening tonight in order to push my progress. I suspect that I won’t finish the editing tomorrow, but with a late night tonight and some weekend time I might finish it by Sunday. We’ll see how I do today.
