Ok, tight line edit is done. Book is clean and beautiful. I'm actually rather impressed with myself at the moment, gauche as it may be to admit it.

Of course I'm 34,000 words over contracted length koff koff but that's what multiple editing passes are for. I've got a couple more weeks to hammer on this.

Did I mention the 5,000 words or so I need to add?

I guess it's a good thing you've found you're the sort of novel writer who can chop 40k off of a draft without sobbing uncontrollably.

Or at least without blogging about sobbing uncontrollably. ;)

I'm glad to hear that it's looking clean and beautiful, and I'll be looking forward to reading it!
