This is a perfect example of what it is like being a writer. I was ecstatic just a little while ago because I passed the 250 page mark. However, I was going back though the file looking for something and realized that a format change had occurred at about Chapter 16. The right margin had somehow been reduced from its usual setting.

After Karren fixed it for me the manuscript is now 238 pages long so that quick I lost 12 pages.

Of course, that means that I get to experience the excitement of hitting page 250 again and it really didn't affect anything since the length of the book is whatever it comes out to be, I don't shoot for a certain number of pages.

Still, it feels like I lost ground today.
