Edits are done!
I’ve been working on these edits forever!
At least that’s what its felt like.
Cutlass Anne has by far been my biggest challenge. One, because I think I sent the wrong file to the publisher. Oops.
Two. I’ve never done historical fiction before. That in itself was a challenge. Tons of research, Googling, reading, questioning, rewriting, and contemplating went into the creation of this particular novel. It took me a good 8 months to write it. I can normally bust out a novel in three months. With edits and rewrites I can have one finished in an eight months to a year.
I really enjoyed writing historical fiction; however, that does not mean I’m sticking to it. I enjoy writing so many other genres as well that I can’t stick to it. I loved writing zombies. I’m really enjoying my rewrite of Ever After. I’m loving the humorous chick lit I started. I’m loving the full length erotica I’ve got going on. I’m loving the paranormal romance I have kind of started. There are so many different stories that span so many genres that are clogging my brain that I can’t stick to one.
But first round edits are done for Cutlass Anne. Now I wait for 2nd round edits to come in. I await February 2014! I’m so anxious! I just can’t wait!

Going through polishing/pacing edits on my WIP at the moment, and they feel as if they are forever. In first drafts especially, I have quite a verbose style, so I’m cutting so many random lines. Gah! Sometimes it feels like, never ending, editing will be the death of me!
PS. I should also say well done for completing your own edits. Awesome! 😀
