Progress on writing Gender Euphoria
Hey Everyone, just wanted to give you all an update on how the book is coming along.
So, after a VERY busy July spent writing, I have finished the first draft of my essays for Gender Euphoria. my number of essays and wordcount should account for 35-40% of the finished book's length, with the rest being made up by contributor essays.
Obviously I'm going to need to spend some time doing revisions and redrafting my portion of the book's content, but that first draft is sorted and out the way.
In terms of contributor essyas, we've had four of five of our 17 contributor essays back so far, and all of them have been of really high quality. Two of them so far made me cry while doing edits. I'm feeling really confident this anthology is going to be something really special by the time it's done.
The plan is to hopefully, by the end of August, have all the contributor essays recieved, edited, redrafted if needed, and ready to a publishable standard. At that point, I basically just need to pick the final running order of the essays, write any connective sections, and get the manuscript draft to Unbound's editors.
i am condfident still that, by the end of August, we should have a first draft of the full manuscript ready for editing. If we can manage that, hopefully we can keep that ball rolling and get the book out pretty fast.
I'll give everyone more updates in the next month to let you know how progress develops.
Thank you all again so much for your support
