I heard on the radio that March is the official edit-your-novel-month. Which of course begs the question: Are other authors only editing their novels one month out of the year? How do I get that gig? I’m editing all of the time. Well, when I’m actually writing and not doing all of that promotion my editors have instructed me to do.
Side note: the bow-tied one called two days ago and asked how the latest novel was coming along.
“I haven’t written anything in weeks,” I told him. “I’ve been working on all that promotion stuff you wanted me to do.”
“Stop promoting and get back to writing,” he told me.
The man just refuses to be happy.
Anyway, so March is edit your novel month. The radio people also listed some other things March is, including caffeine awareness month, frozen foods month, and national peanut butter month.
Coincidence? I think not. What do you think authors are eating while they’re editing their novels?
