First round of edits, DONE!
So, today I went to the pool. Got a little bit more tan. Almost finished reading XVI. Anddd ….
I FINISHED THE FIRST ROUND OF EDITS for my yet-to-be-named contemporary YA that takes place in Las Vegas! Which needs a name, because it would just be easier that way, but I can’t for the life of me figure out what it should be.
310 pages, and can’t figure out a name. Go me.
I don’t want to jinx myself or anything (not that I necessarily believe in “jinxing” oneself), but the first draft of this novel was relatively decent. I actually felt caught up in reading it. I’m not sure if that’s a good thing because it’s interesting to read (at least it was to me), or a bad thing because I might have missed edits, but we’ll see. I’m about to print it out to do paper edits, and I usually catch more there.
And so the cycle begins. Computer edits. Paper edits. Computer edits. Paper edits. You get it. Sometimes it feels endless. And I feel bad for the trees because I use so much paper. But hey, at least I buy recycled paper.
On another note, I haven’t heard back from publishers on the novel that my agent submitted recently. I’m going to be positive and look at that as a “no one has said no yet!” Which they haven’t.
Watch me get a “no” tomorrow. Or, back to positivity, maybe I’ll get The Call.
Except that it’s a Sunday, so neither of those will most likely happen.
Time to do some MAJOR printing! As in, 310 pages of it. And then finish reading XVI.
