Well I did it. I completely retyped a 348 page book. There were many times when I wanted to leave out words and when I wondered why I had put so many in it. The second book has only 229 pages. I suspect that I won’t be so lucky with the third book. Of course I’ve got to find the outline to it. I know the gist of it, but I don’t want to rely on my memory alone. I was helping myself out with dialog and action. This doesn’t mean I’ll follow it word for word, because I’ve already changed my mind about the sequence of events. What a job, but one must take the bitter with the sweet.
