I have had my editor’s comments back for a month and a half now and have only finished work on the introduction and three chapters.
This is harder work than the original writing. Most of that was easy—I pulled it right out of memory.
Now, I find myself word-smithing line by line and this is tedious and hard. I am having a good time as the work allows me to revisit the anecdotes//adventures and spend half the time chuckling and the other half searching for a better or more correct word. My editor, Cecily Sailor, has done fantastic work, but it still remains my work nonetheless.
I’m shooting to be finished by the end of May and be well into the next phase by then also.
