Another draft done

iStock_83133533_SMALL7Finished another draft of this one. It’s been on my computer for at least two years. I find the thought of this book fatiguing. I just want it done with. But it might be a few more drafts away though 😦

It was also the first goal in my quarterly goal objects to be completed 🙂

This 50 A4 page novella is almost ready. At just under 29,000 words this YA book will be out by the end of the year god damn it! I started this edit only four days ago too. See what you can accomplish with no social life?

Writing for yourself

e71f11a628bf9ccf847cafdde3ee7430

I have a degree in creative writing and a post-graduate degree in editing and communication, but I’m not using it be a freelance editor. In fact, I’m only using it for myself. I didn’t spend all that time investing in myself to waste my time on others. Selfish? Yes. But I already have a job that gives me a decent supply of money. And from what I’ve heard, freelancing is risky. I’d rather spend my free time on working on my own things. My books are not going to write themselves.
