I did my first day of book editing today. Got through 35 pages of what is now a 439-page manuscript, due to an added dialogue to introduce a character who was originally introduced with exposition.

That's not bad. If I keep up that pace, it should take me about 2 weeks to finish this round of edits, and I think then I'll feel comfortable trying to get some professional opinions on it.

Word count is 127, 453.

Most of the edits are breaking up run-on sentences. Everyone knows I have a propensity for those. The one place I'm leaving them is in the dialogue of characters who use them.

Edited for:

Your Day on St. Erasmus by LadySphinx
Your name
You wake up in the morning, only to find . . . .you are still drunk.
And that . . . .the grocer's boy is a transvestite.
So you stomp off to . . . .the Tinker's Dam
And proceed to . . . .get drunk.
Everything was looking up until . . . .you were nearly murdered by a tree.
And before you go to bed, you vow . . . .to run for Alderman.
Only to discover the following morning that . . .there was a time jump and it's three months later.
