So, just to update you on what I'm actually doing at the moment.... I've managed to pull myself out of my post-Melbourne funk and am back to work.
I polished up my query for The Sidewalk's Regrets and sent off a first batch last week. We'll see where that leads.
I did a quick, first round edit on Stumped because I won a 50K MS edit and wanted to make sure I got the most out of it. I'm hoping the editorial comments will be helpful and will be able to guide me through the next round of revision. Because while there are parts of the book I really like, it needs some big picture work to help focus it better.
And finally, I dug out the MS of Between Paradise and Nowhere, the NaNo novel I never finished last year, and am trying to make it to the end. I'm at the climax now, so should finish by the end of the week. Then I need to go back and fix a major problem I have in the middle before I go back to the beginning and revise.
So I have plenty to move ahead with. What are you working on right now?
