Nip and tuck, Slash and hack

Five sparklingly revised chapters in the can, and the sixth largely done. Even with the addition of the Finn character arc, I've chopped the manuscript from 124 pages at this point to 72. Fifty-two pages in the bin, 42% reduction, sounds drastic but you know what? I haven't really lost a thing. The story isn't the same; the story is better than ever, tight, dynamic, vital. The beginning of Rose|Thorn is shaping up tomatch the ending.

I give it another two months and It'll be ready for queries.
