Have I mentioned lately...

...that I think editing is extremely boring?

In case I haven't...editing is extremely boring.

That said, it is a necessary evil, and as such, I have spent the last two days revising Out of Focus and With the Band. Both are now polished and off to beta readers. For my next trick, I'm debating between diving into Disengaged or revising NSFW.

Disengaged is a novella that has been keeping me awake the last couple of nights. You may have noticed it's already up over 7,500 words...this is because I scoured one of my old trunked books for a few chapters. The beginning of the story was sound, so I'm using it for this book instead, just taking the story in a different direction.

NSFW needs help. A lot of help. Now that I've put it aside for a few months, I think I can see where the problems lie, which means I can tear it to shreds and fix it. I hope I can fix it, anyway. I really like the story and the characters, even some of the minor characters, so I want to do something with it. Chances are, I'll end up axing about 20,000 of 65,000 words, but adding that much or more.

Disengaged is probably next on the menu. Need a change of pace from editing, after all. After that? I also have another novella waiting in the wings, plus an erotic thriller I'm researching and outlining for NaNo.

Never let it be said that I have nothing to do. :D

Also, my blog has been shamefully lacking in Cavillporn, so I will now remedy that. Behold...Henry Cavill:

  1. I approve of Henry Cavill. I would like to see more of him. IF YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN.
