O.K. that was a bit of a lie. I’ve not completely finished. What I have done is finished the re-write/edit. When I started, it was a mere slip of a thing with 63K words now it has a mammoth 98K bulging (I hope) with sub plots, read herrings and hints of what’s to come.
So, what’s next? I hear you cry. Well I need to go back to the beginning and finally correct all those grammatical errors I’ve been ignoring. I also need to sort the chapters out. Some are far too long. Providing I don’t find too many problems and embark on another re-write I should be ready for beta readers by Christmas. Then depending on the reaction I get I will hopefully be looking for an editor in March.
If you will all excuse me, I need to get back to doing my victory dance.
