Draft Three - 81%
Draft Three is still going well and hasn't been nearly as painful as I thought it was going to be. Reducing the word count has been good as it's made me question what is relevent and what isn't to the story so hopefully it'll be a much better draft once it's finished.
I wanted to cut around 10,000 words to bring the word count nearer to 85,000 words and so far I've cut 7,713 so I'm well on my way.
This week the Sigh Count has rocketed to 12 with only 7 eye rolls. There will be much less in my next book so another lesson learned!
