Edit, edit, edit

I spent the better part of yesterday editing GIRL'S GUIDE. (I had read my edit letter over several times, and I had made extensive mental notes (one of my favorite can't-fall-asleep strategies, to numb my brain into exhaustion!), so I mostly knew where I was going.)

Most of the edits were simple and straightforward. I did, though, end up re-writing the better part (perhaps, now, it's the *best* part :-) ) of the chapter where the vast majority of the backstory is revealed, where Jane learns about how witchcraft works in her world. I've taken a completely different tack to explain one of the many mysteries that Jane confronts, and I think the new approach works much better. If I do say so myself. :-) All in all, I got through one third of the manuscript (but probably through half the edits.)

So, today, I head back to the day-job, but I should get a full 45 minutes of editing in this morning. Sigh. I've enjoyed this little respite from the ordinary!

Mindy, shrugging back on the usual load of chaos
