Despite having only gotten about four hours of sleep, I worked on the quotes from Chapter 2 for two hours and fifteen minutes. I also read a chapter of Tell It Slant and did some researching of potential publishers.
I thought cutting or tightening the quotes would lead to an overall reduction in the number of pages. After working on twenty-two pages today, I am not so sure. The revisions I did included rewriting some of the quotes in my own words. All that work has only reduced the length of the chapter by one page.
