About to embark on the rewrites of chapter 41 (of 48). Currently the 3rd draft stands at 116,460 words, 78% complete. Lots of repetitive stuff has been excised and a lot of rewriting - the whole thing has taken way, way longer and been much harder work than I anticipated but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel now (said tunnels playing Large Roles in the plot and that so ha ha, well done me)

I'm sort of simultaneously doing a 4th draft in that I'm printing it out as I work and always see loads more editing once it's on the printed page so...

Yeah. Slow. Very (she said tiredly), but coming on. The end is in sight and all that.

Kay, one more chapter then dinner must be cooked and dishes bathed in Fairy Liquid (so that my hands might be soft as my face tho why they'd want to be is a mystery that might never be explained) before that most estimable thesp. Dame Joanna of Lumley pulls her documentary panties on and turns her most serious face to the camera to tell us all sorts of stuff about cats. That cannot be missed, no siree.

Alrightee. Tea, methinks, then ON! (huzah!) with Chapter 41, 'The Sandburg Theory'. :o) Yeah, really. I just couldn't resist.

I did! I went!went!went! 120,000 words, 80%, we're on the last day of our hero's story. Should be done soon (want a read?) *g*

Oooh, pom poms. ::iz distracted:: - from Stephen Fry and a curry!

oh god, and I'm just starting on my second draft which is a big, big mess! :)) I feel like my characters are sullen teenagers in a classroom refusing to answer any questions or giving short, smart-ass answers and refusing to leave the room when I ask them to! :D

How long have you been at it? I've been writing mine for almost 2 years. :o)

I'm embarrassed to say that some variation of this story has been floating around for about 10 years...but this most recent variation that I am determined to finish for real? About one year...
