I woke up around 9 am today. Last night was pretty great. I still can’t get over the party. It wasn’t anything ridiculous. Just good clean fun. Do you ever just have “fun” without having to do anything insane? Feels great.
The revision is going great. As I read through it I get more and more surprised with my editor’s work. She’s fairly young and not an “official” editor. She works for her school paper and edits/writes columns and loves to read. So hiring her was ideal because I needed both an editor and a reviewer.
I took a risk with her but it seems to be worth it. This won’t be our first edit so she will have more time to gain experience and I’ll teach her a few things. I think it’s cool that I handpicked her like this. Once we publish our first title things won’t look good for just me but her too. She’ll be able to say, “Oh I edited a book that’s out on shelves”. How many people have that on their resume?
Anyway I have 98 pages to look over before I begin coverart designs. So far, the only things I’ve had to change are sentence structures and dialogue within the book in order to give the characters the demeanor I want them to have. You know, certain words, actions and phrases that one person just wouldn’t say or do but the other would. I’m glad I have her. I doubt things would be progressing at this pace if I didn’t have her help.
This isn’t the update. I do those at night. I set a goal to edit 88 pages a day in order to reach my deadline, 44 in the morning and 44 at night, not to mention the other book I’m working on. But I will probably end up finishing the revision tonight. One day ahead of schedule I’m liking it.
