Stuck in my Shed

This really will be a short post as I'm in full-on Edit Mode. I've had a very thorough report back from my editor and yesterday I discussed the changes I'm going to make with her. She's made lots of excellent points which I've been considering for the past week, with only one extremely unwelcome thing. (Past to present tense - frustrating as I had lots of present tense in an earlier version before deciding to ditch it.) One of her ideas, to write some extra sections in another voice, has really grabbed me despite (or because) it being from a sinister, sneaky character. I'll have to be careful not to get too carried away with this, or I won't have time for all the other changes.

So, no more tweeting, Facebook, posting on writing sites, nipping out for a coffee, listening to the latest plot twist in The Archers and all other time-wasting activities for the next couple of weeks. I'll even try to get Mr C to do the washing up :)

The Writer is At Work and the shed door is firmly shut.

Good luck, Jenny. Will the entire book be in present tense? If so, that's a lot of editing. I wish you much strength and patience. All for good cause, though. :) xxx

Important correction: Mr C regularly does the washing up in any case, as well as many other house things on top of his demanding business activities.
