progress report

I'm not progressing as fast as I'd like on these revisions. Last night, though, I went a couple of pages with no changes at all, and it struck me that I was for most the part doing line editing, and that was what took so long, pondering how to clean and sharpen each sentence.

It isn't the time for that now; especially since my revision letter might have me cut scenes. I want the manuscript I turn in to be clean, of course, but I have to back off a bit if I want to be done. I still need to have time to physically enter the changes in the computer file and write the new scenes I've decided I need.

This wasn't an issue last time; I simply wrote until my brain was empty, printed, and sealed it into the courier envelope so I couldn't touch it again.
