Final stats for round five: 105,576 words, 39 scenes (depending on how you count), and 358 pages.
I was making a list of words to scan through and do clean-up on, but I think I’ll do that while they’re out with the test group. I don’t expect line-editing from them, so I can do that while they look at the story.
I’m itching to read the whole thing again before I print it out, but I fear that would be a never-ending cycle. So… happy birthday to me, I’m printing my novel today. I mean, tomorrow.
Jay was really jazzed about doing electronic copies to everyone, but the local people all want something in their hands, so I’ll get our printer busy with that.
I want to bind them too– maybe with cardstock covers for durability/portability, but I’m afraid that will look cheesy. Thoughts?
