Minus 37 pp.--made up ground

Made the changes on Ch. 4 this a.m. A projected cut of 11 pp. turned out to be 14 pp., so I made up the lost ground from yesterday. 37 pp. total cut in the first four chapters--right on track.

It was a long session of attentive work and ended up taking more energy and time than the chapters yesterday. I think my editing notes got less precise along here during the read-through. I had to do a lot of problem solving this morning.

I'm going to try another chapter this afternoon. I have to be careful not to get so carried away that I neglect to plan my classes for next week. One of these days I'll have to take some time away from the novel.
