I'm, uh, down two pages from last time. Turns out there was a two-and-a-half-page segment in chapter four that just needed to be cut. I had been thinking that there was a superfluous part in that chapter, but hadn't been able to pin it down. My wife identified that chunk, and I knew immediately that she was right. With other edits on chapters three and four, however, about half a page was added back. This cut and the new slightly additions really improves chapter 4, which was slightly weaker than its peers until now.
The stats as of today:
-37,750 estimated words.
-44,782 actual words.
-Six-and-a-half fully-revised-and-expanded chapters (112 pages total).
-Eleven completed chapters in all (151 pages).
