Final Passes

I'm about 15 pages from finishing the first part of my final pass through the manuscript. I'll reach the end of part one tonight, which comes to approximately 107 pages -- prologue and four chapters. Not bad for two days work. The second part is twice as long, and the last part has a comparable length. So, week's end is the projected goal to apply the last polish.

It's actually fascinating, reading through at speed. I've added a line or two and gained a page, and whittled in other spots, losing a page. I think of it like a jigsaw puzzle; I'm smoothing out the joins so the cuts don't show. I know the process will continue past this point (at least, that's my hope), and the book isn't truly finished until it appears in print. I'm still satisfied, though.

Congratulations on your progress and getting that little bit closer to the ultimate goal: your book on my bookshelf!

Heh, thanks. Only problem is that it's almost out of my hands.
