I’ve gotten back into editing 🙂 It’s been months and I had no idea when I’d get over my burn out. I think this story is almost done 🙂 I will be aiming to have it out by the end of the year at the lastest. But I want it out sooner.
I’m no longer doing big edits, just little ones like single words and the occasional sentence change. Maybe it’ll be complete in another few edits.
Today has been very productive. I’ve just completed another draft of The Things We Do. I’m doing line editing and pretty much just zoomed through it. I know I need to do like two more drafts at least.
It’s 25,646 words and 42 A4 pages long. I’m classing this as a novella instead of a novelette because I think it’s too long. I think novelettes are more on the cusp of 20,000 and under.

I managed to edit 31 pages of my novella The Things We Do. I have another 10 pages to go, but I’m just too tired. I had already given this story to some people to read a few months ago. They said that they liked it and wanted to know what happened after the book finished. I’m not sure if I want to write a sequel, I don’t have much of an idea of what the next journey will be.
But as I was going over it again, I saw a lot of mistakes. I mean quite a lot. It makes me wonder what my friends thought of my writing. I know one person only managed the first few chapters because they started it stoned and then forgot about it 😦 Thanks for that.
