Manuscript, unformatted: 192 pages. 89,385 words in 17 chapters. I added and cut a ton of stuff in this version.
Microsoft Word has, btw, been a huge pain in my ass through this whole thing in a way it’s never been before. It’s been unable to hold formatting, for instance, which is a ridiculous pain in the ass when I’m breaking chapters out, editing them, and pushing them back into the larger manuscript.
Anyway. Tomorrow’s the Seattle-to-Portland. That ought to be fun. And by fun I mean “not really that fun at all”.
