(Also, I shouldn’t be posting this tonight since I only finished it this evening and the refining process improves exponentially with the amount of distance between the actual writing and the editing. But here’s the thing*:
Word Count Report: Pine&Meyer, 425 words. Which, for the record, does not take into account the massive load of deleting and re-adding the newly written stuff to make up for it. I almost thought I was going to go negative count on this one, except my cutting is never that severe.
*This is a lie. I got up at 7 a.m. this morning and, instead of dressing and eating breakfast, read through and edited the last scene again, cutting out nearly 200 more words. Also, thanks go to IT Guy for catching another couple of things.
