My revised chapter count has grown significantly in the past few days. This sounds like a good thing, and on the surface it is, but it also makes me quite worried I might be rushing this round of revisions.
The problem is this part of the story is pretty exciting. When I revise it I am both reader and writer, and while my writer-self is trying very hard to slow down and cull all the bad smelling roses, my reader-self just wants to keep going so she can see what happens! Of course, I already know what happens, so this is problematic for a number of reasons, number one being that it signals my burgeoning schizophrenia.
On the other hand, it could mean that this part, being so absorbing, is particularly good and needs little revising. This is what I hope is going on.
Anywho, my chapter count is now:
23 / 32 chapters. 72% done!
(Notice my talented hubby figured out how to change ‘words’ to ‘chapters’. I love me some free tech-support!)
