Hey, look what happened. I lost 500 words from my total, but I gained a whole percentage point!

How did I do that? By changing my target to the actual word count of the manuscript as I'm revising. I decided I should get some credit for cutting. This is the first day of this system where I haven't met the target I set for myself, but man, I put in the time. I cut some, read a lot, added some, and made a big change that required a lot of thought but a very few words.

I feel all right about having a day like this as long as I can keep moving tomorrow.

So, I'm a little less than 13% through with my time, and a little more than 13% through with the draft. Did I also mention I'm a big nerd?
