Today, I am at nineteen pages for my fifteen to eighteen page chapter on an overview of the prophets.
The good news is that I have have done a lot of research and it has paid off with pages.
The bad news is that I know I am going to have to edit this chapter down. It is very rough.
The good news is that when editing it’s always better to have to much content which you can trim up, than trying to expand sparse content.
The bad news is I hate to edit my own work. I’m too emotionally attached to the text. I have a tendency to to justify why I wrote all these words in the first place.
The good news, I have some folks who have said that they would be willing to help me edit.
So I’ve got that going for me.
It feels good to be going into this weekend with this many pages already written. I know that there will be many many more long days and nights of reading, writing and editing, but I’ve started, and I am hoping to keep the momentum going. So . . . with that I bid you farewell. I have to write a conclusion to this chapter, and start up my research for the next one.
