I just finished the first draft of my Scifi Novel. Last night I started the first edit. It has just over 192,000 words.
It was running over 1000 pages and it's time to cut it down to a reasonable size. My goal is about 105,000 words.
I started last night and managed to cut it by 52,000 already. That included the first three chapters and an entire subplot. That was easy because they were whole chapters.
I have given up TV for the most part, that was easy. I try to work at it two hours each evening.
--Now it's line by line revision time!
