You know I'm editing when...

I update my blog more often.

When I'm writing a book, I get deep into it. I try to spend all of my writing time on my book. I get so little of it, that I have to prioritize it--and writing my next book is always my number one priority.

Right now I'm editing a wip that's taken me about a year and a half to finish. And I'll probably spend the next month on intense edits and rewrites. I cannot wait to get this story out to my beta readers and get some feedback. This is one of my favorite parts of writing. I've talked before how I feel like I can do a lot of the real "art" of writing when I'm editing. It's just so satisfying.

Having a completely polished manuscript would be a great Christmas present to give myself. And what better way to start the new year than working on the new idea I've outlined and I'm completely excited about?

Where are you at in your manuscript right now?

  1. I'm re-writing. It's hard when you've already written the book a few times, but I'm forcing myself to take it to the next level. It's not easy though!

  2. Yay for editing :)

    Ummm, it depends on the MS. My two NaNo projects (both collabs) one is just being finished. The last chapter will get written today or tomorrow. The other collab is our with CPs/Betas. I'm just about to start the second in the Fraction Series (first will be published March 2013). And for the first in the Fraction Series I'm getting the cover reveal blog tour ready.

    Busy busy :)

    Good luck with all your editing!
