Minus 64 pp.--Done with Ch. 17

So far, so good on my theory that Part II has fewer deep structural problems and will go quicker. I'm cruising. I did a read-through on paper of Ch. 17 yesterday p.m. and input the changes this a.m. Shortened it by 1 pp. That's a total of minus 64 pp. I'm starting to think that if I get it really sharp at the sentence level, at this length I might be able to put a couple scenes back in if they are warranted.

I'm starting to think about the next stage. Lots to consider. Another read through on paper for sentence-level work (especially in Part I)? Find another beta reader to help me? Whatever it is, I'll be doing it within a few days.
