I finished the 1st draft last month. It came in at a morbidly obese 75,000 words. Double-spaced with size 12 font that comes out to 210 pages. So far I’ve edited 50 of those pages, spending at least three hours a day to do so. Each page takes me 20-25 minutes to edit.
The blog may suffer during this editing process. Posts may arrive at stranger times.
April: Finish the 2nd draft. Send to hand-picked editors. Do my taxes.
May: Decide on a book title (with your help) and create cover. Complete the book.
June: Self-publish. Complete blood vow to never write a book again.
This project has ruined my life, so I will be pleased when it’s over.
