Well, mostly good things to report over here!
My read-through went super good—I slashed and dashed as many words as humanly possible and got ye olde novel down to……………… 88,819 words. Not quite the 85K I was hoping for, but at least it’s under 89K. You know. Ish.
I’m currently researching agents (I’ve been doing it on and off for a while now), honing my query letter and so on, and all that editing paid off—I revised and condensed that query, hooray!
Still working on getting my Scrivener compile feature up and running again (the tech support people are super helpful). Just got a general Scrivener update email today and it said that a couple of recent Doctor Who episodes were actually penned in Scrivener, which of course made my little geeky heart go pitter pat. 😀
Gonna poke at my novel a little more and make sure it’s EXACTLY perfect, and then it’s off to the query mobile, batman!!
