Editing thy novel: My new abode

As I have a few days off I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to spend hours and hours on my novel. I even found a new abode yesterday, which has the best hot chocolate in the South West, and unfortunately due to creative reasons I won’t be able reveal this haven just yet. However, I would like to add and let you in on my frustration. Yesterday I managed to edit three whole pages before I was distracted by my shopping list, which I had to go home to cook.

Today, I’ve managed to edit 5 pages so far, but the daunting prospect that I am only 28 pages into a 200 page draft is startling to say the least. Do you, or have you experience or advice in the process of book editing that you would like to share?

I think I’m going to go pick up my new printer now, which I plan to encourage myself by printing out these 28 pages. The idea is to inject some sense of productivity, and spur me on.

Besides this very enjoyable process, I am still looking for a new book to read. My schedule has cranked up a notch this week, which has place a whole new value on time to read. I’m open and keen to find a good rom com novel, or anything other than horror or porn so if you have a recommendations please leave below. I only ask as time to research book reviews has shrunk again. All though I am a huge fan of novelicious and good reads.

Happy Friday everyone! Stay tuned for my pancake story this Monday!

Peace and Jam!

P.S

This cafe is so cool. Besides hot chocolate, and a range of tasty looking cakes! The music is chilled and one of my favourite songs by Passenger is currently playing in the background. I’m currently sat by a huge bay window, where the sun is piercing through in the most beautiful way. The shop had a great selection of design and home items. All of the above make for the perfect writing environment right now. I’m so glad my friend introduced me to this place. She said it was a great place for getting things done, and she was right. I have discovered that choosing a spot to write/edit your novel is crucial to finding your flow. They say silence is golden, but for me it’s tempered with the sounds of my new abode.
