OK, so I lied! One more day (at least) of rewrites. While I pushed through to the end of the final chapter yesterday, I’m really feeling like, especially in the latter chapters, it was a race to finish, and adjustments were too much polishing, not enough critiquing, so I’m going to take a look at continuity and character development notes and see if I can’t incorporate, or at least confirm, those elements. I’m having trouble maintaining the necessary elevation on the plot; I get too caught up in the detail - and also not caught up, I guess, based on all the continuity and clarity issues the beta readers are raising!
So yeah, maybe a couple hours more to really clean things up, and then I’ve got to start getting other stuff done!!
