The First Edit

Yesterday, I completed what I consider to be a minor milestone on my way to completing my novel: the first edit pass.

While I’m not done with the story yet, I decided to do this work now because I found that I was losing the thread of my own story. Some of that was a function of my writing cadence, which has been a couple of hundred words here and under to a hundred words there. Writing paragraphs and sentences instead of pages at a time made it hard to remember the full arc.

After reading and editing 36,868 words, it feels like I’m more than halfway done.

Onward!
