In the latest rewrite, I removed one scene that was too similar to an earlier scene and rewrote the ending. I still have more work to do on the final chapter to wrap up everything.
In the third rewrite, besides the deleted scene and final chapter, I concentrated on description in the manuscript. I also cut needless words in the narrative and dialogue.
I wanted to trim the fat by about 2K words but only managed 500. I'm not sure if there'll be much more slicing and dicing in the next rewrite.
Until the next time...
