It’s the first of July, and I’m off to summer camp for the month.
My July Camp NaNoWriMo goal
I’m at Camp NaNoWriMo to get Curved Space to Corsair (Viridian Series 2) edited.
I promised my new editor I’d have it done by the end of April. She’s busy with preparing to move house, having some holidays, walking up hills and similar activities. She might not be ready for the book when I’ve finished it, but if I don’t finish it, she will never be ready for it.
I wrote the first draft of Corsair at Camp two years ago. Then I got busy with redoing The Perihelix and writing and publishing Willoughby and Princelings of the North. I like Corsair very much. It deserves more attention, so it’s time to put some effort in. After all, I ended up putting a lot of time into those 30 Days Wild blogs. I should be able to fit in a couple of hours editing a day if I put my mind to it. But it’s editing, isn’t it. Deadlines are always needed for editing. Mine’s 31st July.
Meanwhile, Smashwords are keen to promote my books for me without me lifting (much of) a finger.
