Obelus

OThe memoir manuscript grows to 100,000 words. How could I be so self-centered to expect an audience to appreciate such a lengthy narrative? The next step becomes a task of removing the redundant or insignificant passages – or those which may be doubtful memories.  The obelus symbol used to mark these passages in ancient manuscripts is now commonly used as a division sign ÷ .  Divide and conquer – final execution.
