I edited the first 19 pages of “Graveyard Shift” and also wrote the first of several new sections, which adds an important subplot to the story. All told, I added about 500 words of new material to the story, but I also trimmed a little from the first 19 pages. I think the second draft is coming along very well, and I like how the story is beginning to smooth out and fall into place.
