I am now on chapter 11 of 35 in my rewrite. It began as an in-depth edit until I realized I was kidding myself. So much of my page was consumed by extra facts and unnecessary explanation to the reader my story l lost all momentum.

After over two months of rewriting I am still only one chapter 11. I have a demanding job, yes, but I also have been forcing myself to take my time. In one chapter alone I decreased the word count by 38%. I can honestly say the story is stronger for it.
