…or, if you want to get technical about it, the first sentence I re-wrote, from Blue Fire, was:
There were still a half-dozen tents scattered around the grounds.
After today’s re-writing, the total word count stands at 22,016.
Meanwhile, as Lee Arthur Chane, the first sentence I rewrote for Magebane was:
If such thoughts are near the surface of the First Mage, so highly placed in my Father’s Council, he thought, how strong are the hidden currents of them in the people as a whole?
Over there, total word count stands at 27,155.
Moving along well on both rewrites, but it’ll probably be next week before I resume writing all-new material.
