The End of the Twelfth Cycle

Even Things That Go Bump in the Night Need a Place to Unwind

I have completed my twelfth review of the Grand. This review resulted in a 40% decrease in corrections when compared to the eleventh cycle. Siamese Dreams had the most substantial drop of 64%, while Penny Dreadful had a 25% increase. Overall, there were 91 corrections which averages 6 changes per chapter.

About 94% of the chapters saw a drop in changes during this cycle. This is the first cycle where the amount of changes are less than one per percent and the Mad Hatter’s Mirror averaged of 1,423 words between corrections.

Here is a summary for this cycle:

  • There was a 40% drop in corrections when compared to revision eleven;
  • 91 modifications for the entire work, the first time changes are less than one per percent;
  • 6 modifications per chapter;
  • Siamese Dreams had the most substantial drop at 64%;
  • Penny Dreadful increased by 25%; and
  • The Mad Hatter’s Mirror averaged 1,423 words between corrections.

These revision took far less time than revisions prior to seven and for the following reasons:

  • It takes far less time to run through the material;
  • There are far fewer errors to find with an average of 819 words between corrections. This improves on the 520 words per change seen in revision eleven; and
  • Changes implemented are minor in scope.

I expect to keep pushing through these revisions until the total amount of corrections drop well below 50 for the manuscript. Since there was no change from the previous revision, I expect there are 2 revisions left.

The End of the Eleventh Cycle

Even Things That Go Bump in the Night Need a Place to Unwind

I have completed my eleventh review of the Grand. This review resulted in a 13% decrease in corrections when compared to the tenth cycle. One Small Step had the most substantial drop of 40%, while Journey Through the River of Belief had a 29% increase. Overall, there were 151 corrections and gives us an average of 9 changes per chapter.

About 56% of the chapters saw a drop in changes during this cycle.  Penny Dreadful is the first chapter to have an average of 1,073 words between corrections.

Here is a summary of the cycle:

  • There was a 13% drop in corrections when compared to revision ten;
  • 151 modifications for the entire work;
  • 9 modifications per chapter;
  • One Small Step had the most substantial drop at 40%; and
  • Journey Through the River of Belief had a 29% increase in changes.

These revision took far less time than revisions prior to seven and for the following reasons:

  • It takes far less time to run through the material;
  • There are far fewer errors to find with an average of 520 words between corrections. This improves on the 432 words per change seen in revision nine; and
  • Changes implemented are minor in scope.

I expect to keep pushing through these revisions until the total amount of corrections drop well below 25 for the manuscript. Since there was no change from the previous revision, I expect there are 1 to 3 revisions left.

The End of the Tenth Cycle

Even Things That Go Bump in the Night Need a Place to Unwind

I have completed my tenth review of the Grand. This review resulted in a 17% decrease in corrections when compared to the ninth cycle. Penny Dreadful had the most substantial drop of 46%, while the Man and the Sea doubled. Overall, there were 173 corrections and gives us an average of 11 changes per chapter.

About 63% of the chapters saw a drop in changes during this cycle. This revision cycle is the first to fall below 200 corrections overall.

Here is a summary of the cycle:

  • There was a 17% drop in corrections when compared to revisions eight and nine;
  • 173 modifications for the entire work;
  • 11 modifications per chapter;
  • Penny Dreadful had the most substantial drop at 46%; and
  • The Man and the Sea had a 200% increase in changes.

These revision took far less time than revisions prior to seven and for the following reasons:

  • It takes far less time to run through the material;
  • There are far fewer errors to find with an average of 432 words between corrections. This improves on the 424 words per change seen in revision nine; and
  • Changes implemented are minor in scope.

I expect to keep pushing through these revisions until the total amount of corrections drop well below 25 for the manuscript. Since there was no change from the previous revision, I expect there are 1 to 3 revisions left.
