Fourteen out of thirty two chapters done. This is probably going to drop to one chapter a day once I get into the newer stuff, but right now? Blazing through it.
Another two chapters done. so that’s up to twelve. Nothing much to change this time – just some tweaks.
Chapters 9 and 10 done, and I’ve run up against what I think is the only significant continuity-related part of the thing. Shouldn’t be too hard to sort out, though.
Not really much more to add to that. I guess I need to start looking for a market for it.
Another two chapters done, so that’s six. Editing is oddly restful, actually – good holiday work. I may do some original stuff next week, just to break it up.
Two more chapters. Four down, twenty-eight to go. At this rate I should be finished in two weeks. It’s so close I can taste it!
Tore through chapter 1 and 2 today. Applied the copy-editor’s notes, made a couple of tweaks of mine, tidied up some grammar and double-spaces. Soon this will be done. Then I have to write at least one more before the end of the year, I think. IT CAN NEVER END.
Today I got back into novel editing mode – reading the feedback on my last, somewhat radical rewrite and getting ready for the final pass. This is it. Once I’m done this time then this book is going places. One way or another.
Today I wrote about Patrick MacGill, the poet from Glenties who fought two kinds of war. Tomorrow I may picture it and publish it. After that – I’ve got the feedback from my test reader on the novel, so it may be one final round of editing and then off it goes to…somebody. I’ll figure it out.
