The ultramarathon (aka I'm drowning)

Line edits are here. I have to get these babies back yesterday (well, not quite) and it is SO much work! My editor gave me some great direction, but it requires me to edit every single sentence of my four hundred page book and rewrite most of them in a way that's much more time consuming than how I wrote them first time around. It's way better, but it's SO slow and she needs these back right away! OMG. I am SO feeling the pressure right now. I want to deliver both in timeliness and quality of revisions, and right now they seem to be mutually exclusive. Three hundred pages to revise in about four days.

Over and out.
