[writing] Progriss riport

Knocked about 5,000 words out of Green tonight. Maybe 2/3 of the way through a fast scene edit. This draft is fairly tight, so once I'm done with this pass I'm going to have to start cutting Real Stuff.

Only found one scene which I could toss as-is so far, and four or five where I could make significant cuts. On the one hand, this means my draft is good. On the other hand, the cuts are only going to get tougher.

I'm having fun, but I'm also looking forward to spending April not Under Deadline. (Not that I'm complaining, mind you...)

Since when did I get so hard core about revision, anyway? Ah, New Model Process.
