I have news

I have finished my first draft today.

It has come in fractionally under the 80,000 words I was aiming for, but I am not concerned, as my editing processes almost always require the addition rather than subtraction of words.

The hard work of polishing it begins now.

Liz, Amanda, Andrea, thanks! x

Paul Lamb - welcome. I wish I knew how to maked editing easier. I think it has to be partly trial and error. But getting an opinion from a trusted reader can help too.
