More Editing

[I need to post blogs more often!]

Today, I am going to start putting my hand edits into the computer! I was going to wait until all of my hand edits were done, but maybe my time will be better utilized if I do them at the same time. Morning hours: at the computer and evening hours: editing by hand in front of the TV. :) I have about 50 pages left. I feel like it's important to get more editing done each day since I've been applying for jobs. I had three interviews this week and if I find a full-time job, my writing/editing time will be cut drastically. It'll be like being in school all over again. Hopefully though I'll be able to get some writing done each day. So, that is my progress so far. Yay.

In other news, I have tons of reading to do. I have four books checked out from the library right now: "Halo", "Beautiful Darkness", "Crescendo", and "Unearthly". After I finish those I my tackle some of the recommendations a few of you left in the comments section on my last post. A lot of them were definitely along the lines of what I like to read.

I wish there was more to post today (and other days) but I don't want to bore people with too many "editing" updates. It'll get more exciting when I finally start sending this off to readers and agents. Hopefully that will happen in the next couple months. March is my goal.


  1. Wow, you edit so quickly!
    Good luck on the job front.

  2. @colleen, it's all about setting a goal, I think. I was managing about 1/2 - 1 chapter a day (editing). Some days I managed to get 2 chapters done. I'd love to be done with all edits by March, but we'll see! And thanks, I'll post about job news as well. :)

  3. I don't know if you know about this, but there's a blog about ex-FPers looking to get published that I think you might find interesting:

  4. Hey Jammi! Thanks for sending me the link. I haven't seen this but I'm excited about it! :)

  5. Sounds like you'll have no problem with your March deadline!

  6. Wow, you seem to be editing along nicely. Congrats.

    March is 2 weeks and 6 days away approximetely. Good luck for the deadline, and getting a new job.

    Anymore thoughts on re-posting the Killing Series? I had to ask... I'm still waiting for the day when I log onto here and you've declared the re-posting. *dreams*

    I actually miss Es, Caleb, Adam and Moo. Its kinda sad since they're not even real but I can't help it.

  7. 2 weeks and six days huh?! Well, let's see I'm currently working on chapter 10, which leaves 13 chapters left. My goal has been a chapter a day, so I may actually make it!!

    I miss Es and Moo too. I just created a new post about my hesitation to re-post those stories. Let me know your thoughts Sammy!
