So, the first stage is done.

5873676227_3e719fa0caMy expression here says it all.

I have finished the first run through of my manuscript. All Donna’s comments addressed, much altered and quite a few¬†bits added. Even with deleting quite a bit I have added another 300 words so manuscript is now 100,850 words. Not a bad length.

Now I have to begin reading it through chapter by chapter and address the individual chapter notes Donna has sent. A lot of these elements were addressed in the comments in the manuscript, but some were not.

So, off we go.

Still not settled on a new title.

Still think my synopsis and pitch is poo.

Still I am hoping to have the manuscript ready for when I go to WFC, though I don’t know if I will get the courage up to pitch to anyone.

As for Oracle it is on 1 month and 13 days since submission. The online submission tracking system this publisher uses still states “in progress.” So will wait until after WFC to nudge.

Just under three weeks to WFC!!!

  1. I think the title says it all so I am not a supporter of a change.
    If the work you’re worried about is a different genre, I think there is even less reason to change your title. How ’bout HOG, A Novel? That should differentiate it.
    Probably why I am not as successful as you are! :)

  2. Same genre. I don’t want to change it, but think it might have to be. And you are sucessful!
