Yep, we really did just toss a 55k word WIP

Kelly posted earlier today about our decision to toss a WIP of 55,000 words. If you’re a writer (or maybe even if you’re not), you’re probably wincing right now. That’s a lot of effort that we just put aside. Six weeks of effort, in fact. She talks about our thought processes leading up to this…
