More editing... different book

Last week, I finished the re-read and second edit of the middle book of the fantasy trilogy (a.k.a. "book 7"; a.k.a. "Guardians of The Realm 2: Aeron Returns"). I wasn't sure if I would actually manage to finish it as a zillion other things landed on me last week, but, I got it done. That's not its final edit by a long chalk, so if I have missed things, I have more edits to come, where I can pick things up.

Now, I'm on the re-read and first edit of the final book of the trilogy (a.k.a. "book 8"; a.k.a. Guardians of The Realm 3: Chaos"). I'll have a chunk of work to do on this as a consequence of changes made to the middle book, but that's okay. I'm fondly saying 'the final book of the trilogy' but there's still the possibility that there's another book in the series rumbling away in my head!

I expect that all of my spare time in February will be taken up with editing "Chaos" but there's a lot of other stuff going on in my life that's taking me away from writing/editing. It may well be that my editing schedule shifts or has to be re-written! Best laid plans of mice and men and all that... There are ongoing issues with the health of my parents that take up quite a bit of time, but I'm really hoping that these will resolve soon.

With everything that's going on, it's been hard to remember to have time for myself, but hubby and I did make it out to the cinema last week (to see "The Favourite" which was excellent) and are hoping to go this week (to see "Mary Queen of Scots" - yes, let's see how many historical inaccuracies we can pack into two films... 😃). I'm also looking forward to some friends coming up to see me in a couple of weeks. I'm really bad at remembering to take a break from writing/editing!

Right. Back to the life-stealing demons and the havoc they're creating!
