Week 10 Kaiser

Here I am, typing away, working to meet deadline.

The time has come for the editing process where I tear down all the things I thought the story needed. “Killing the Darlings” as they say. I am pretty sure that is just an expression to make a writer feel accomplished even when continually hitting “delete.”

Beloved sentences murdered, I got the story down to 2,300 words on the nose before Grace got a hold of it. All my careful planning and precise word counts shot. It is back up to 2,350.

It will be finished once I get a couple questions from Todd answered and his final approval/fact checking. Then I want to make a video slideshow, which also needs to be recorded. The last push is here. I am on schedule.
