It's amazing — even after three years of working day and night on my manuscript, I am still discovering various flaws in the story line. While I have no problems fixing the ones I find, the fact that I seem to stumble upon them more or less accidentally makes me wonder how many will continue to escape my attention. It makes me worry that quite a few will surface only AFTER the novel has been printed and distributed (even a single one would kill me). What a nightmarish thought.

Yesterday's editing was pure carnage. I reduced a five-page section of the second chapter to two pages. Today I will have to go over it again and see to it that the scarred remains are being stitched together properly. I am proud to report that I didn't cry a single tear. :-)
