Back at the beginning of this Round I listed that one of my long term goals is to become a successful (income earning) author.
As part of that I had an objective to edit my first novel for an hour a day. I sort of did, off and on. Last November I'd shown a synopsis of all three novels to a small local publisher - he expressed interest in two of them and asked me to send them to him when I was done editing. He reminded me a few times, and each time I'd put on a brief 2 day push.
Last weekend he contacted me again, so I decided to get serious about this. I set a target for both to be edited by Friday - not publish ready, but clean enough to evaluate. I met that target, he read them, liked them, and set up a meeting for today. He had a number of changes to suggest - all good - and now I have 2 weeks to re-do the first one for him. Then it will be Beta readers, copy editing, a cover, jacket text, and hopefully up as an eBook on Amazon etc by June. Depending how it goes - maybe printed copies after that.
- Editing - see above - completed editing my first two novels
- Writing - book review for sci-fi club
- Other - Read book for my club - The Quantum Thief. Caught up on some videos for Aboriginal course - last week
Focus - editing. Maybe do my course quiz just to get it done, and save rest of videos for later. Writing/reading? Not really.
