First Draft Finish Line
Posted Thu, 06/10/10
I finished Mind Sweeper this afternoon. My relief is great, but now the editing work begins. Any simple inconsistencies can be easily fixed since I keep a spreadsheet of character traits and locations, but glaring omissions or misstatements are another matter. In other words, I'll be doing a lot of reading and scribbling in the margins over the weekend.
My word count this week:
At this point, Mind Sweeper has a total of 70,085 words not including the cover sheet and table of contents. It's not overlong when compared to Celtic Remnants, which has a word count of 213,242.
Nonetheless, I'm very happy with the results of Mind Sweeper.
