Officially Through the Middle

I’ve officially passed through the Dreaded Middle of the book. This isn’t so much a word count thing (I thought, until I did the word count) as a scene thing. The worst is over, and now we’re going out to kick some ass.

This fact does, however, neatly dovetail with this afternoon’s wordcount (still 2500 behind schedule):

Now comes the long pause while I clean up the first 3/4 of the book so I can write one long, smooth end-tying, ass-kicking ending.

Yes, this means line edits.

I’m slashing at least twelve pages and going back to get in some foreshadowing and more clearly tying folks and events together. I’d like to avoid dog-sized holes in the plot. Let’s keep them roach-sized, please.
