Book 1 - Going Slowly
So the editing has begun and is proving to be a very slow process. Seriously. I've only managed to get through three chapters. How can it take longer to edit than write the bloody thing? Baffling.
I've also cut over 5,000 words already, including over 2,000 which made up the prologue. How much crap did I ram into three chapters??? There'll be nothing left by the time I've finished. Having said that, I am happy with the way it is going so far (or as happy as a self-doubting person can be). I feel I know my main character much better now than I did when I started out so can judge better how she would react to certain situations, how she would speak etc.
It was quite difficult to get back into the swing of things after our break but it has got easier over the past couple of days. Who knows, I might even pick up the pace now and get it edited by 2020!
