I now know how long I can line-edit a manuscript. It’s until my index finger of my writing hands starts cramping and spasming.

Okay, I thought it was in its final editing stages. There’s still lots more editing going on. Happy Thanksgiving.

1/1/14

Happy New Year. Still tweaking and editing. As with everything else, this is turning into a bigger job than I thought. Bear with me…

4/13/14

I have acquired an editor to line edit the completed manuscript. She is quite established and well-regarded. I look forward to working with her.

5/20/14

Received the edited manuscript and crit back from her and am now going to work implementing the changes page by page. Not a lot of drastic work, though, so presumably it won’t take too long. Then again, it’s hard for me to stay awake doing “clerical work.”

Also started something else of a major nature, but am not divulging at this time what it is.  :-)

6/20/14

My editor thinks the book needs a title change. Any suggestions?

9/15/14

Entertaining Welsey Shaw is officially searching for representation.

3/13/15

Something is brewing but I’m not allowed to talk about it.

5/13/15

Entertaining Welsey Shaw being repped by Curtis Brown. Stay tuned.
