Well, it certainly has been a while since I wrote an editing update, hasn’t it? I checked, and my previous one was written all the way back in January! Don’t let that fool you into thinking I’ve not done any editing. You might have noticed I no longer have my writing progress meters up on the blog, mainly because it became a pain in the ass to keep track of all of them, because some were on hold, some were being written, and others were being edited.
The Castle of Llyr is the third book in the Chronicles of Prydain by Lloyd Alexander.

I’ve been preoccupied with feverishly editing my second NaNoWriMo novel [OSAA] for a couple of months now, and after spending weeks on draft 1.5, I’ve officially started on draft 2. After finishing up my last couple of comments I hope to send this novel to my beta readers. It’ll probably take me another couple of weeks though. I might not finalize it until 2017.
I’ve finished editing both my novellas; I finished editing down my NaNoWriMo 2014 novel [SG] to a novella first, because I wanted to submit it to The Book Smugglers’ novella initiative. Which I did, though I’ve not heard back yet. But on their site they said to wait until August to hear, I believe, so if I haven’t heard anything by then, they’ve decided not to go with my story.
I’ve only recently picked up my editing again, not because I was busy (though I was), but because my head and heart weren’t in it. That’s not a state in which I want to look at my manuscripts, and it took a while for that mood to evaporate. But I’m back in the game now! I’m reserving the weekend especially for editing, mainly because during the week it’s all writing, writing, writing and working, of course.
I’ve…not been editing at all these days. SHAME *Ding* I was in the middle of editing my novella [TBWAH], but I had to stop once I started participating in NaNoWriMo [OSSA] and because I’m working full-time at the moment.
