Tomorrow is the first of March, meaning that National Novel Editing Month is upon us. This is my first year doing it because in past years I’ve had nothing worth editing or I haven’t been able to commit to the fifty hours. One can’t sneak around fifty hours as easily as one can fifty thousand words, especially when writing comes easily. I’m going to be a bit of an EdMo rebel this year, though: while a lot of people will actually be editing their prose, I’ll be revising my outlines and scenes and characters before starting the rewrite, which may or may not begin in March. This is what happens when you write a first draft in two weeks.
Let the editing begin.
