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.
