Today is Key-Word Cavalry day, but I literally just walked in after ten hours at work, so I’m too exhausted to think. So… I’m going to do tomorrow’s post now and KWC tomorrow, when it doesn’t feel like my mind is a sieve.
As a result, this will just be a quick update on editing.
This week alone, probably about five people asked about whether I’ll make my 30 June deadline.
Short answer…. I don’t know. I’m really close.
Doorways is currently divided into ten parts. Some are long, but towards the end, the parts are short. I got part seven back from my first round of critting, which is the last long round left before the climax and the closing. Once I edited according to these crits, I’ll send out part seven again while sending part eight to the first CP. Once I’m done with the second critting round, I mark the part’s edits as done on my blog.
BUT… in June, my other CP will be available again. And I will only really see my edits as done once he’d done his crits. So I might be done by the 30th… or by August. But… officially speaking, I probably will be done enough with my edits by 30 June.
By that I mean that I will be comfortable enough with my edits to query my story.
So yeah… that’s where I am with my edits.
How’s your WiP coming along? Are you drafting/editing anything?
