Self-editing, Jack Thunder and the Me Fat... er Wii Fit board


Found an interesting blog post about self-editing (the writing kind, not the punching your own face kind, though frankly, both can hurt :(  http://bloodredpencil.blogspot.com/2009/01/ask-editors-self-editing-part-three.html (thanks [info]aravah for posting the original link.

Finished the first run-through of Waking up Jack Thunder on Friday.  Though I made a lot of margin-notes, I'm pleased with the way it's shaping up.  I need to make some big changes to the first and last chapters, but overall it's in good shape.  I want to finish the updates by mid-February, then it's tax return time, followed by a second run-through.   I hope to have it ready to pitch by the time I go to the LVWG's Write Stuff conference at the end of March.

On the fitness front, the Wii Fit board hasn't been quite so insulting lately, but I need to pick up the pace if I hope to reach my fighting weight in time for the multi-author signing I'm 'hosting' in March.
