So, I got the edits for Blink of an I back from my editor yesterday evening. Yay! But I'm still not ready to send her Early Grave. Boo! I did a little mental panic dance at that moment. And then I told myself to chill out.
I can still finish Early Grave's edit pass and send it off to AWE tonight or tomorrow morning. I could even, if I had to, work on both of them at the same time. The skillset needed for each task is different enough I wouldn't be getting myself all confuzapated. (Confused + addlepated = confuzapated.)
Early Grave - reading it on the Kindle and making edit notes, then entering edit notes I made into the manuscript.
Blink of an I - Opening my working copy and her edited copy side by side and entering her edit notes as I go down the pages.
It could be done. If I had to. I guess. Right now, I'd prefer sitting down today and cranking through Early Grave until it's done, then tackling Blink after I send EG off to my editor. We'll see how much I can get done and whether I reach a point where EG is 'editor ready' by the time I want to do Blink.
And that's where I'm at right now. All editing, all the time. Except for when I need a break and wander out into the woods.
