Before LSW5 crashed back in late 2013, I left myself a note in Chapter 4 to mark where I was in what I was calling the final revision. Since 2½ years have passed since disaster struck, I’ve decided to go back to Chapter 1 and do it all over again.
Chapter 1 of 27. More than 200 pages in 12-point Courier New with 1-inch margins. About 83,000 words total. A coffee mug with bourbon and one ice cube.
I guess this isn’t exactly Draft 12 anymore. It’s time for lucky Draft 13.
I’m ready to write.
