Editing Update #8

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.

My supervisor hasn’t given me feedback on a proposal yet and I need to write my papers about a subject similar to or related to that proposal’s subject. So if he could get on that, that would be great. Continue reading
