Editing is fun, but hard work!
I had a great day today editing my novella.
Progress is slower than I’d like, but I love it. Today feels like a good, satisfying got-a-lot-done day. I’m certainly exhausted.
All I really managed was to write a not very good synopsis (too much emphasis on what they do, not enough on how they change, and why) and edit three chapters. That took me all day. I stopped at around 10pm, when I finished chapter 3, suddenly realising I was starving and had to eat straight away or I’d go all wobbly!
I’m quietly happy with this story. It still may not be good enough to sell, but it certainly is the best thing I’ve written.
Only problem is- 11 more chapters to go, two days to do them in. You do the math. I’m just hoping the later chapters, once I had a clearer idea of the characters and their story, won’t need as nearly much editing.
There’s still the synopsis to tweak again too, and a query letter to write. All before midnight on Tuesday.
Wish me luck! I need it!
