85 scenes in 15 chapters. That is subject to change without notice. I suspect the finished book will wind up with somewhere around 90-95 scenes.
Next up is to adjust Version 2 to reflect the scenes that are gone. That will significantly reduce word count, but give me a good foundation for moving on into the actual rewrite.
Aside from the timeline problems, I also identified and fixed (I hope) some other inconsistencies. I don’t think I have one person in two places at the same time or any more long stertches of time unaccounted for.
Each step completed cinches my excitement up a little bit more. I can do this. I will do this.
