And then there were six

December 29, 2007

A while back my family and I took a road trip to visit my parents on the other side of the state.  During that trip, I read what started out as Chapter 3 to my wife, and after getting through it all we decided that it needed to be split into at least three different chapters.

Well, when I started working on splitting it, and filling in the holes that we found during the read-through, we were at page 51.  Chapter 3 ended up becoming four chapters (3, 4, 5, and 6), and we ended up adding about 20 pages, so we just cleared page 70.  I finished the chapters just in time – we’re going on another road trip tomorrow (same road, same parents).

The scary thing about all of this is that we’re probably only a sixth of the way through the story points that we want to cover in this book.  And here I was worried about breaking 200 pages.  Silly me.

My wife also finished the revisions for Chapter 1, which incidentally became the Prologue, and the real Chapter 1.

I don’t have any expectations for how fast we’re making progress, so as long as the page count keeps going up, and the story keeps moving ahead, I’m happy.
