The manuscript now stands at slightly over 137,000 words (whaaat?), which is way too long. I am genuinely looking forward to getting started on the editing. I have been working on this book since January 2011!
I might need to make some decisions in the forthcoming months as I need to concentrate on the editing big time to make sure the book goes to typesetting in the summer. It might involve going somewhere without any distractions - freelance work, theatre, gigs, art exhibitions, gorgeous boy - and edit, edit, edit...
I'll be planning all this during the X**s holidays in December.
Tomorrow, I am working on the Shorelines blog.
