With only 12 days to my self-imposed deadline, I have 64 pages left to record. That’s not including all of the retake lines where the boy is sighing in the background or the dogs, or the sirens, or any number of other invasive sounds of the neighborhood that made it onto the track with my expressed permission. But, 64 pages can be done in two days, so I’d say I’m in pretty good shape!
This has been a miraculous system of revision. The latest line that has repeated way too many times: “Ben had never felt pain like this in his entire life.”
Aside from that being a kinda crappy line, it certainly does not have any business being written in one book more than one time. I’ve counted five so far. And subsequently deleted four of them.
All right. Back to work. And away we go…
