Today, at last, I finished my editing of Part II of Janet’s book draft. This has been a l-o-n-g project, interrupted for 6 months by our adoption of a puppy in January 2019. I wasn’t able to find time to resume any editing until July 24.
I am now eager to upload the pdf of Part II to this website. I had hoped to do so this morning, but I encountered an obstacle. WordPress has a limit of 2 MB. My file today is 2.4 MB. It is a pdf made from a Word document that is text-only, no photos, but it does contain 420 pages of words. TOO big!
Janet’s original was even longer, running from page 199 to 683, for a total of 484 pages. I had worked hard to shorten it, removing (into separate documents) long digressions unrelated to the core story of the Pine Knoll family. I had simplified many footnotes and deleted explanations that now (in the age of easy Google searching) seemed unnecessary.
I will now need to divide this part into two segments. For now, I need to step away from the computer, and deal with other priorities of life.
