    Done! (for the third time)

    By Jennifer 8. Lee | July 17, 2007

    Okay. I am done entering all the line edits and cuts (a lot of cuts) and major rewriting. Only one chapter was really in bad shape (out of 20ish, not so bad). I have completely gutted that chapter (2/3 of it is gone).

    Now all that is left to polish it — while not procrastinating on AIM and Googlechat.  Next: wait for edits back from The Greatest Chinese Restaurant in the World (outside Greater China) chapter. Enter the factchecks. (I have a great factchecker named Jennifer!)

    Almost there. This is like a 3-year pregnancy + a 2-month labor process. And then the thing goes into neonatal or something, because you can’t hold it in your hands for another 7 months!
