progress report

Finished paper edits last night and did laundry. Actually, I did most of the edits while sitting in the laundry room. Then I compiled the chapter files and entered changes. I think I made it a little less than half the way. I need to finish tonight.

Of course I am not satisfied, but in a perfect world, I would be spending months on edits until I was satisfied, and also I would not have edited until the entire draft was done. But this novel is for a commercial world, and there's no point in having an agent if you don't open your mind to her suggestions.

I'm going to stop angsting now. Tonight, I only have time to enter edits. I have to email the file off tomorrow morning.
