Edit Mode.

I've really been attacking the story since Monday. I'm 3/4 of the way through--but I really need to make some decisions. I need to cut something out. Or I'm going to have a 70,000 word first novel. Not a good thing, usually, for YA. I'm going to finish my edits, and see where I end up. I guess adding details and depth adds WORDS, too! ;-)

Remember, this is only your second draft. This is not the draft that goes out on submission. You still have work to do when you finish this. So, add all the depth, and then, in the next draft, you make the cuts.
