Rewrite Update

So I had Tuesday off for Election Day.  Thank you home town for using the elementary schools as polling places.

Draft 13
328 pages 73K words
My plan was to start rewriting and working on draft 14

I have outlined what I need to do and cut a whole bunch.

I have two new idea's--- I sort of love them, but I'm not sure if they are going to make it into the latest draft.

I started at 268 pages and 64K words.

After writing my new word count is: 

280 pages and 68K --- . 

4k is a respectable amount.

I rewrote the first 30 pages and have really ampped up the characters.  At this moment I'm pretty pleased with it.  But we'll see how the week goes.  I wrote for a good 4 hours.

My goal is finish the rewrites by December.
