The good news: I have finished my read-through.
The bad news: There’s a section at the end of Chapter 8 that needs expanding. I don’t know how I missed it.
I could (and may very well) cut it out. I’ve removed more deadwood and I’m down to almost 53K; adding another thousand or so words is a bad idea. Yes; I’ll cut it and add it to my deleted materials file. That way if someone comes back tome and says, “You know, I think this chapter needs something like this” I can pull it out and say, “What, like this? I have anticipated your desire!”
That, and the bibliography, and then I think — I say, I think — it’s done. As done as I can do it by today, anyhow.
EDIT: Okay, I compromised: I cut half of it, and expanded the other half.
