Chapters 16, 17 and 18

Had a good week - got through three chapters and eliminated 4,430 words. On to Chapter 19!

Chapter 15 update

Done, with 1,131 words eliminated. I'm feeling better about this... on to chapter 16.

Chapter 14 update.

Finished with 1,829 words deleted! Wow - the most so far. Total word count is now down to under 112K and I don't feel I've killed any part of the story doing so. Still not sure I'll get it down low enough for YA, but at least I'll be in the ballpark to query agents who handle both... On to 15.
