know i'm useless when it comes to correct word counts. so it seems only logical that what i thought to be 27 norm pages are actually 36 norm pages. still not much, i know, i know. i have finished the fifth proper edit now and, as a next step, will have another look at the original draft to see whether maybe there was something in it i deleted but that's actually still useable. the only problem poses my printer that has been acting funny ever since i have been using improper refill cartridges. it used to work just fine in the beginning, it has been telling me for a while now, though that the colour cartridge is empty (i never even used nor replaced it!) and that because of that i can't print anything in black and white, either. grrrr.
