First major edit: complete!

Yes, you read correctly. I have edited the final word on the final page of The Big Smoke.


I am very excited, and I wish I could write a full blog post in honour of this momentous occasion, which occurred less than a minute ago. But it’s 11pm and I have to work tomorrow. So I shall tuck myself into bed and dream about celebrating instead. Good night! πŸ™‚

  1. Congratulations! And ahead of your December 12 deadline (unless it was December 5 and then still congrats for finishing on time :))

    • Hehehe. You are sort of right with both dates. My overall deadline to have Part 3 to my beta readers is 12 December. Finishing this edit is a major step in the right direction for that – now I just have to proof read it one more time (to pick up typos I made during the edit) before I send it off (by 12 Dec). Does that make sense? πŸ™‚

  2. Congratulations! What wonderful news to wake up to today!

  3. Good job! The first edit is always the hardest.

    Well done Cally! I am very excited for you. So where to now? Wishing you every success and can’t wat to read the ‘final’ manuscript of Tangled… Entwined… The Big Smoke!

    • Thanks, Mum! Where to now? I proof read this last part then send it out to my beta readers. Then I consider their feedback, make any changes and send it out to my second group of beta readers. Then, after that, I make the decision about traditional publishing versus self publishing.

      P.S. You’re forgiven for the typo! πŸ™‚

    Sorry about the typo … wat should read wait!

  6. That’s great news! Congratulations!

  7. Good for you Cally! πŸ™‚ I’m sure it will be awesome!

    • Thanks! Looking forward to hearing what you think of it. It will be coming your way once I’ve done a final proof read (hopefully I’ll get most of the typos so you don’t have to!) πŸ™‚

  8. What an achievement! Nice work!
