The cunning plan worked...

Well... I'm not entirely happy with the epilogue and I've already got 2 whole A4 pages of notes entitled Things To Change which I need to address when I start editing but... for now, the work in progress has reached the end of draft 1. Or 2 or 3 depending on whether you think doing a major rewrite half way through entails a whole different draft and whether you think a version of the same story with different characters is a different book or an early draft.

So, I'm on for the non-fiction editing this week. I may fit in a hair cut and a visit to see a friend as celebrations for finishing the wip as well. And then, as of a week tomorrow, I'm into editing and rewriting with the aim of sending it off to my editor by Easter.

There, I've laid the marker down.

Stay with me....

Well done! You can't beat a time-crisis or cunning plan for galavnising you in to action I think.

Well done, Alis!

There's nothing like finishing a draft, even if you can't tell which number (a problem I often have too...)
