Type in

Not great, but it’s something. Now to bed.


  1. Looking at your “type in” bar above makes me wish I was finished editing my novel. My book is a YA, and only 45k words. 100k seems like a mountain to edit.

  2. Jay says:

    Sometimes it feels like one. In fact, it kind of look like one. It’s not too bad. Best of luck with your revisions.

  3. Thanks. I am 80% done with my first revision, and then will make a last minute read through to catch any biggies I missed.

    That picture is intimidating. It makes me think of those 1000 page L. Ron Hubbard books that used to clog the bookshelves at Waldenbooks. I can’t imagine how L. Ron edited a bulk like that. Him and Stephen King must have a secret method to stay sane.

  4. Jay says:

    Sounds like you’re making good progress. Keep it up.

    It’s not nearly 1000 pages. I think I’d be going ever more nuts if it was.

  5. I couldn’t imagine staring face to face with a manuscript of that length.
