I knew today was going to be rough. Deleted a couple thousand words. Net gain – 604 words (79,997 total)

So… yeah. I wrote hard. I love what I got. 

And I love it because Matt and I did a long live-brainstorming section last night, and he and I worked out a helluva better way to go with the story.

I deleted a lot more than I’d expected, though — some of it in places half a dozen chapters back.

So very worth it, however. Today’s book is MUCH better than yesterday’s book.
