I did not make it onward yesterday. Instead, I thudded dully into how exactly I hoped to redo this LAST GIRL DANCING chapter that has to be redone. I was going to sit at the kitchen table with a couple of pens and redo the thing by hand. But what makes the most sense is to simply open a new file, start fresh, and do a complete replacement of twenty or thirty pages where I went wrong. And since I don’t have a lot of time left, that’s what I’m going to do today.
I don’t have any what-you-might-call flexible deadlines at the moment, but I do at least have a couple of reshiftable days. And if I have a great running weekend with a six-thousand-word Saturday or Sunday, maybe I can throw this rethink day back into the pot.
Ah, yes. Am starting late today because I woke up at 3:30 AM, couldn’t get back to sleep until about 5:30 AM, and decided I’d be better off to sleep until I woke up rather than get up with the alarm clock at 6 AM.
Starting count today, 70,618. Finish count will be whatever I manage to plug in. Twenty pages would be about 10,000 replacement words. All new. Hell, it’s worth a try.
