England in the summer is a place of bliss. Even sitting in MDs editing on a Sunday evening.
I’ve completed 50 pages of my redraft of Dealer No. 1, using my agent/editor’s notes, so I’m very happy about the pace: 50 pages per week = about 7-8 weeks. Editing is one of my favourite things, and when it’s guided by an editor who is very competent at his job it’s a joy to do.
I still work part-time as an English teacher, but this week’s two days’ work will be mostly officiating students’ seating at the summer Sports Day. On that topic, just spotted one of my year 8s sitting with his family, so I might scarper before he sees me.
