gaining an editor -
send a non-disclosure agreement to my editor friend today and will see if, when, he sends it back... i can send him the first ten chapters or so.
i am happy to eek this out to him a little at a time, hoping for the critique to come back in trickles.
it is tricky (for me) translating from a poetical-writing point of view to move into novelization.
but i'm DOING IT ANYWAY!
so... good news.
that way i can kind of multi-task when i get slowed down inside the story to bounce back and forth and polish off earlier bits.
i don't know if other writers work like this, but it's how i roll.
i'm paying my editor friend in free credit (not dollars) at the beginning of the book, so i hope i don't drive him nuts and monopolize all of his free time, i hope the cost of doing business with me is worth the price that i am paying him.
