The forest of words

I got back to my editing today. The novel wordcount hacking is going really well – I’ve got rid of about 18,000 words so far and I reckon I can hack it down by another 10,000+ words when editing the remaining chapters in the next few days. I’ll have it finished and ready to pitch by Wednesday, and will send it out to the first batch of agents on Thursday. I’m so looking forward to working on other things in March.

I’ve got a few bits and pieces of writing to do over the weekend, but I’m also looking forward to spending some time with the in-laws.
