That round of rewrites done! It was more work than I thought it would be, changing from 3rd person to first. But it's done! Tonight I celebrate and tomorrow I'll print it out to read again and make more changes.

It's so sad when you cut out a good action scene. But the physics of it were bothering me. So I asked someone who's fought a lot of wildfires and he said that there was no way that would work.
So I came up with a good solution and cut about 8 pages. I feel better about it.
Too bad, bc it was dramatic.
*cue dramatic music* duh duh DUH!
