I finished chapter twenty yesterday, which leaves me with one chapter left to revise on Zane.
Lately, getting this book finished is all I'm able to concentrate on. I'm hoping to finish this last chapter by Saturday, at which point I'm going to let it sit for a week and just relax. Kick back. Do some reading. Get some distance from it. After a week I'll print that puppy off and read it all in one sitting. See how it holds together. I've done so much layering I've lost sense of how the book flows and fits together. I'm sure I'll find some small tweaking that still needs to be done. Plus, I’m sure my CPs will find problems in these last four chapters that need to be addressed.
Once I've done the last bit of tweaking, I still need to do a final edit/polish and trim. I'll have to cut somewhere around eight thousand words. I've added quite a bit of stuff in these last four chapters which increased my word count. Looks like the book will come in around 108-109 K this time around.
