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.

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.
