I didn’t quite meet my February target, so have made doubly sure I met this one! The piccy says it all. My ‘secret’ project, which I started at New year, has reached book length and the end of my post-it note planning.
The next stage is structural edits in which I make sure the scenes are in the right order and shuffle accordingly. Finger crossed, there aren’t too many surprises which need attention as one moved scene tends to affect another.
Once I’m happy with the scene order, I’ll get a printed copy and begin true editing – literally slashing through sections with a red pen. Great fun, but painful for an author.
I’ll be sorry to see March go. I’ve enjoyed my little self with structural edits for my Christmas book, writing my 'secret' book and revealing new book covers.
