Pages added, 2/16/17: That’s complicated. More than one, fewer than seven.

Current page count: 490

Estimated final page count: 490-525?

Deadline: None, but Wildside says they’ll send me a contract any day now.

Comments: Okay, I’ve gotten to the point in the second draft where the stories all merge, and I definitely need to rearrange some chapters. In fact, I’ve split one in half, and moved the first half back to earlier, so as to make the events line up properly.

That’s responsible for part of the increase in page count; I’m not sure how much.

I’m at the break between Chapter Twenty-Seven and Chapter Twenty-Eight (which used to be 26 and 27); everything is now on the correct side of this break, but some earlier chapters need to be rearranged.

I’ve been correcting a lot of chronology; I discovered I had misremembered the date of The Unwelcome Warlock.

A third draft will definitely be necessary, but for now I’m just trying to get through the second.

Word-count is now 121,279
