The great Edit

30 Mar

 So I suppose you think that the reason you haven’t heard anything from me for the last few weeks is because I have been frantically editing to try and make the March 31 deadline.

Uh… no.  Not actually.  In point of fact I have done about two hours of editing all month.  I have just been so busy with other annoying things, like my life.

cza1467lI have discovered something though.  Writing 50,000 by hand is tough, but rewarding.  Editing 50,000 words in a hand-written form is less rewarding.  It is almost impossible to edit a hand-written draft, and so the first step has to be to type the draft out.  This is quite painful, and theorectically should take about 50 hours.  50 hours!!!  Not cool.  So I need to seriously look at whether this handwriting thing is worth it next year.
