Half a page of edits

Just so you know what my work looks like at the moment: Here’s half a page of my manuscript for The Shadow Tracer. Lines in red are my additions to the current draft. Lines struck through in red are cuts I’ve made. Strike-throughs in blue come from my editor.

Those few black lines of text? Those are words I’ve left alone.

By the way, the manuscript currently prints out at 424 pages.
