History book one version two is with Netta
I just now shipped the book off to Netta. Scrivener tells me it is 140,000+ words, 373 pages in paperback. Netta will have a cow. She wants it at around 100k but I'm all right with more as long as it's all supposed to be there. That's Netta's job--to help me figure out if stuff needs chopped out. I'm sure she'll come up with a list.
I'm tired now. I hope to take a break from writing for a week or two. (And this time I mean it.) When I've recovered some equilibrium, I will start in on Scryer's Gulch again.
Thanks, everyone, for the patience and kindness you've shown me while I worked on this. More work to come.
