Another month has gone by, and it feels as if we’re slowly approaching fall here in Germany. Normally, I’m a bit sad when summer is over, but this year, I don’t mind. I will give up my day job at the end of the year to focus on writing and editing, so the end of summer means that there’s less time to wait until I can finally live my dream.
I got the content editor’s feedback for True Nature in August. To my great relief, she loved it. I’ve been working hard on using her advice to make it an even better story. Now True Nature is almost ready to go to the copy editor.
On the editing front, I’m working on Broken Faith, a novel by the talented Lois Cloarec Hart. Here’s a link to a short description of the story.
I also attended another editing seminar offered by the Academy of the German Book Trade, so now I’m a licensed editor.
And I’ve started to work on my nonfiction book about writing. I’m hoping to publish it one day to help other writers with all the problems I faced when I was just starting out as a writer.
Wow, another busy month!
