That actually sounds like a good idea. Smile Thanks for the suggestion. It's not so overwhelming when I think about it in sections, you know?

No problem Smile I know what you mean, I kept thinking how am I supposed go edit a 57k story?! it seemed a lot easier when I started thinking of it as 18 chapters, its funny how that works!

That's soo cool! I love vamp and werewolve stories, Expecially when it's a whole new spin on the idea! Mines a whole different type of paranormal, its not anything thats been made up yet, so explaining it hard, but I'm going to be querying soon so I'm super excited for it Smile

affraid <-- is how I feel when I think about editing that sucker...lol.

That's awesome!
That is sooo how I feel when I think of editing anything anymore. Normally I would just write a story and just call it 'done' because it was really just practice for me. I just started editing my WIP's and omg I had no clue how hard it was! I hope the editing goes smoothly! (and quickly Smile )
…I enjoy editing. And not just the rewriting, but the line-by-line, as well. Am I the only one? Shocked (If this makes more sense, I plan to be a copyeditor someday--just shows how weird I am.)

That's not weird at all. Smile I actually didn't mind it back when I'd write a few pages then edit/rewrite because it's not so much to do. I just think I'm overwhelmed with all the pages.

&yeah, you gotta like editing to be a copy editor. Laughing

lol, not weird, actually that is very very good! I wish I liked editing more! Copyeditor sounds cool, I always considered being an agent if I didn't become a writer.
