[writing] Progriss riport on my descent into Madness

Finished the very tight line edit of Madness of Flowers on the plane today. I managed to carve the manuscript down by 32,700 words, to 161,900. I need to cut another 17,000 to meet my hard upper limit of 145,000 with Night Shade. Given the very tightly interwoven structure of the book, that's going to be an interesting trick.

So far I am very pleased. I'm also keeping to my production schedule, which is even better news. Now, to deal with some lingering short fiction before I jump back into deep edit mode.
