Welcome to week twenty-four.
Yay! The car passed its MOT. Yay! It didn’t need any extra work. Boo! It still cost me a lot of money.
Taking the car in on Wednesday didn’t disrupt my day as much as I thought it would, luckily, and it was a nice sunny day for walking from and to town, so that was good. Anyway, on to the writing.
Nano Project (Books One & Two)
My task for this week was to do a Kindle read of Book One and an edit of Book Two. Okay, so this started off fine, but by Friday, I was getting very confused with timelines and where things happened in the two books. So, on Saturday and Sunday I finished the read of Book One and totally ignored Book Two. I’m probably about two-thirds of the way through Book Two. I’m still changing quite a bit, so Book Two is going to need at least one more normal editing pass. I intend to finish this pass by Tuesday or Wednesday of the coming week, and then I have a number of queries back and forth between the two books that I need to sort out. Then, I’ll start another edit on Book Two without any gap. I want to have both books published in eBook form by the middle of July (One available straightaway and Two on pre-order), so I should have enough time – that’s another month.
