Progress Report, in which I cheat a little

I’m kind of cheating a little bit here, since for reasons too complicated to go into, I’m counting some writing I’ve done today.  Just trust me on this; I have a good rationalization reason for it.

Anyway, I revised four chapters of Petra Released last week.  Here’s Magic Meter:

Doing a lot of cutting in these initial chapters, which can only be a good thing.  I’m also, as discussed last week, skipping over the chapters pertaining to that troublesome but self-contained subplot.  The wisdom of this course of action becomes more plain every day.  Those chapters are going to demand a lot of me, and I still haven’t found my rewrite rhythm yet.  But it’s coming back to me, bit by bit.

I still have another chapter to do today, so I’m cutting this short.  You are excused for breathing a sigh of relief.

No updates for Write Club.

And I’m out.
