Diary of a Schrödinger’s Manuscript, In a Mortal Shadow: July 4

Happy fireworks day, all!  In a cross-over between celebrating out country’s independence and the point of this blog (all things writing, publishing, and editing): Look! a typo in the transcribed Declaration of Independence.  Oh, no!  

Let that be a lesson to all you aspiring writers.  Proofreaders are important!

On my personal writing front, I found the machete.  I hacked off nearly 5,000 words.  Great! you say.

Not so great.  My target is 250,000, the same length as Name of the Wind.  So I still need to cut 8000 words, that’s the equivalent of about two full chapters!


Excuse me while I sharpen my machete.
