I’m up to revising chapters 3 and 4, and by that I mostly mean cutting, although I did add a new scene to chapter 3 (after removing one). A friend called it The Incredible Shrinking Manuscript. While I’m not sure that it’s incredible, it’s definitely shrinking. I’m trying hard not to worry about that, since the shrinking does mean that the prose is probably getting tighter.
Part of the revision has involved writing some scene types I haven’t tackled before. My test audience for those scenes seems to like them, though.
