Now I've finished my latest contract, I've got some time to work on my own projects again. I've got both Creeper's Cottage and Wolfish ready for first edit. One thing the proofing job has given me is a real appreciation for hard copies. I can't remember the last time I saw one of my novels printed out, and it really is a completely different experience proofing copy than editing on screen.
I went down to a print shop called Right Click in town and got both of them inked. Creeper's is over 105,000 words, close to 400 pages. Satisfyingly weighty. Thinking of taking it to my friend's café tomorrow to work on. Just pray I don't accidentally drop it because I forgot to include page numbers.
