Chapters 10 and 11 have been spliced and edited into what is now chapter 9. Whew! I am pretty sure I replaced nearly every word. But I am sooooo much happier with this version.

This week, the old chapter 12 is on the revision block. This one is another slash and cut and rewrite exercise. After that, I need to mark up the next five chapters to evaluate how much they work they need. (My impression was "not much," but so much has changed with this draft, I'm no longer sure.)

In between my lovely writing sessions and the dayjob, I have an extra wonderful treat. I'm reading an ARC of Stephanie Burgis's historical fantasy Congress of Secrets. And what a treat this is. I feel as though I am drinking a cup of gourmet hot chocolate, frothy and sweet and delicious, but with an edge of dark.

You can read more about Steph's wonderful book here. Check it out!

I read your writing-process posts and I sometimes wonder what it would feel like to work with an editor who was involved at that level of story and who I trusted.

Well... I'm not working with an editor right now. But yes, it's great when you have an editor who gets your story and who knows how to help you make the story even better.

I guess I was thinking of agent involvement as a type of editing, too.

Oh yeah, my agent was great with feedback for Not!Sherlock. I'm looking forward to her comments on this one.
