So what's the prognosis? I have more work to do. :( I really can't put it out there yet. It still needs a ton of fine tuning, but honestly, I don't think I have the patience to do all the fine tuning it needs right now. I still think I'm going to get it out there this month if I can. I think maybe that a Second Edition would be a worthy effort after getting feedback out there in the real world. It might be crippling, but I've got a choice to make here. I'm not sure yet what it'll be. Publishing very soon--or waiting as I rewrite into one POV at a time. Sucks! But there you have it. :)
Signing off for the day...
P.S. By editing it, I never did chop it (which was one of the reasons I was supposedly doing the edit). At the time, the manuscript was around 184,000 words. Now it's 194,000. How did I do that? Yes, I guess it was the new chapters added in. ;D
