Editing is rough, but all in all I have chopped over 20,000 words and inserted over 22,500. All for the better. The manuscript is coming together pretty dog gone great in my opinion.
With this edit I have learned to edit on screen, which will save me a bunch of printer ink and paper. VENGEANCE is edited on paper and still requires all those changes to be inserted in the computer file which is a long slow process. With my new skill that will not be necessary any more.
What's stopping you, get writing.
