Book Two: Major editing completed

I finished the major editing pass on book two. This is where I go in and tighten the writing, look for duplicate scenes (in a book this big, it's gonna happen) and so on. I got 10,000 words out of it that way! It's still 150,000 words, but hey. I write doorstops. We have already established this. Now you'll have stops for TWO doors, not just one. Smile

My urge is to compile it into a doc and throw it at Netta--"YOU deal with this thing!"--but that's a waste of her time. I'm going to compile it into a mobi book instead and throw it at my Kindle. When I've had a chance to recover some equilibrium, I'll read it and take notes.

I am obsessive when it comes to editing. When I'm editing a big project I can't sleep, I forget to eat, I forget to get dressed--waitaminnit...

...I guess I should go shower now...

Anyway, book two is fast approaching, folks. Smile

At least you have editing to blame for forgetting those things - some of us have no reasons!

I'm so excited for you! And for us, because it means we'll have it all that much sooner! Squee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm sure your family might complain, but we won't Wink (Well, except inasmuch as you need to eat and sleep to stay healthy...!)

Bought a pre-sale this time, so extra extra excited Biggrin
