  1. Dear God..,.you are brave for even gathering stats. Me, I just don't want to know. It's too scary to contemplate....

  2. Wow. I don't even think about keeping track of that stuff. I just leave notes and then go to try to fix it later.

    Now I want to get back to revising/editing. (Sick, I know.)

  3. :o) I was curious how many random names I'd come up with. At least this book doesn't need family trees, I have a few that do.

    Stephanie- Good luck with your edits!
