So I'm editing. Editing editing. And this chapter isn't eating my soul (and grinding it up) like some in the past, but it's slow going (like, I do about 500 words, and then I'm CONVINCED that I'm almost done, but I NEVER AM).

At one point, I realized I was deleting a lot and I thought "Oh no! What if this chapter isn't long enough?"

And then i checked how much I had LEFT to do and it was still hanging at around 4,000 words.

Bloody chapter. It will be long enough, or I'll know the reason why.

Heehee. To be clear, though, those 40,000 words are actually five chapters. Roughly.

No. No Lavinia. FOUR THOUSAND words was the number of words I had left to edit in the chapter. Though, indeed, 40 k is the REST of it. Oh, no thanks to you for reminding me....*grouses*
