Monkey King #amediting

The_monkey_kingFor a story that was supposed to be 80K words, the tentatively titled Monkey King Rides Again story mysteriously took on 45K extra weight after #nanowrimo, during which time I kept telling people I wasn’t making as much progress as I’d like.

Now I have red ink all over my hands because my editing pen sat in the penholder too long.  Carved off 6000 words yesterday. Marked areas to examine for liposuction.

Yet I still have a list of images/ideas to add to make the theme and resolution work. Guess today’s edits are to finish the Adds so this MS can go on a gluten-free, low-carb diet, to be svelte by the end of the week.
