I did it!
50 hours in April, despite the week of zero writing.
Finished writing Act 3.
Got through about half of the same kind of word-search trimming I did for the first half of the book. I've cut ~700 words this way so far, so that's good. I am determined to come in no higher than 105,000 words!
I am so, so stoked right now.
Act 4 still to do. Target completion date: May 20.
