I've finished editing and marking all the changes in the manuscript of the first 7 (out of 10) chapters of Madison.
This is my second thorough edit of the entire book. In my previous edit, chapter 7 ended on page 160 and 47,530 words. On this edit, chapter 7 ends on page 163 with the total of words being 49,430.
As you can see, I'm not changing much, which is why I know that the book will be ready to sell as soon as I finish this edit. It's that thought that keeps me going.
I have 3 chapters left to edit. In other words (according to the previous draft), I have 73 pages or 20,963 words left.
I'm off to change over some laundry, then I'm on to chapter 8 edits!
