Short and sweet, to get this in before the scheduled Blogger outage.
Eleven pages of editing, in spite of watching three episodes of Black Adder on DVD.
It’s easy to leave that stuff out once you’ve distanced yourself from it. That’s why I usually try and let a manuscript sit for a month before going in to edit it – just to get a little distance from it (and catch something of a break). I’m not sure if I made it a month with A Father Christmas, but it’s sure editing that way.
I’ve got a legacy of the things I’ve left unsaid
I’ve got a heart that’s full of fear
And I could change my life if I only had the time
All I need right now is one more year
