At the Gaslight Expo I talked to an author I know. She recommended an editor she had just used. The author writes graphic novels and had just published her first novel.
That and the fact that conventions get me fired up I went and contacted the editor. She asked for a copy of the manuscript.
I wasn’t expecting that. It’s Friday and panic time. I’m still working with the critique group on a review of the last chapters of the book and I haven’t cranked in their comments from the review of earlier chapters.
I had a presentation to do Friday night and getting that polished took half the day. The presentation went OK, but I was so tired that I was not thinking straight, and I did not get the comments cranked into the manuscript. I ended up asking the editor if I could send the manuscript in Monday and she agreed.
It’s Monday and I should be working on the manuscript.
I took a big leap and committed to getting an editor and stop trying to beat the manuscript into better shape.
Excuse me, but I have to get back to the manuscript.
Stay strong, write on.
