This site is about my writing, of course, and my attempt to get published.
The short of it is that It remains a work-in-progress. The long of it? I'm about 65 pages into editing my second book.
This is just the first run-through. The goal at this point is really just general clean-up: tie-up any loose ends I left dangling, clean things up, make sure everything is whole and consistent, and, most important of all, hack and slash anything--anything!!!--that doesn't fit into the main storyline. It's all well and fine to have sub-stories or other plot devices that help build your characters up, but I've got a 135,000 word monster on my hands and, as a new writer, I help my chances of getting published by lessening the door-stop quality.
Anyone differ on that assessment?
The second and subsequent revisions will refine some of those points but it really becomes an iterative (or repetitive?) process at that point as I work closer towards a finished product.
Need to finish up some work, then I'm out of here. Have a good weekend, everyone.
