My husband finished reading EotF, the first to get all the way through. He pointed out a few big issues which I will address in this current draft. I'm glad to have an honest critiquer. :-) Hopefully correcting those issues will also bring my word count back up, as most of my editing thus far has been deleting.
I think my problem with T.C. is not knowing my story well enough. I know the general arc, and a few major scenes, but that leaves a lot of empty space in between. I am proving myself to be much more of a plotter than a pantser. I'll let the story stew some more while I work through this round of edits on EotF.
