I finished editing [OSAA] a few days before November hit in 2017. I had been working on draft 2.5, incorporating my beta readers’ feedback and my own comments. Draft 3 was the draft I meant to send in during Angry Robot’s Open Door period. Then November came, I had finished my last edit and I sent it in.
The open door period closed on the last day of the year, and now it’s time to wait. It could take weeks, it could take months. I may never hear from them again. I’ve pushed it from my mind; it’s no use worrying about the future. What will be will be.
In the meantime I turned my mind towards [BOR] and working on draft 1.5. I’d already done my story/character/spelling & grammar revision passes sometime in the past, and now it was time to add all of my written comments to my Word document. I finished doing that a few weeks ago. I still need to incorporate those comments though, and I need to add/cut/revise/rephrase a lot of things, so that’ll keep me busy enough.
