My Editor Made Me Do It!

I call this “My Editor Made Me Do It”: it’s Chapter 1 in all its red glory. Quite a frightful sight, isn’t it?

And the next pic shows the beginning of Chapter 2, which isn’t much better. But at least the cutting has become easier. Yay! However, I need to cut a lot more text if I want to merge those two chapters into one. *sigh*

(I’d also like to know why the heck my pictures come out so very dark when I upload them here. Until two or three days ago, I’ve never had this problem before. Grrr….)
