Do ever get jealous of non-sentient creatures? I do. I rather like my idea for this Friday’s comic, so make sure you drop by again to see it!

I got a fair bit of time to edit my novel this weekend, so I’m over 60% through it now. Yay! I recently read an excellent book called Self-Editing for Fiction Writers, Second Edition: How to Edit Yourself Into Print by Renni Browne and Dave King (available from Amazon, if you fancy using the links below). It had some great tips about editing in there, and now I’m wondering if I should go through my novel again once I’ve done this edit… I’ll get to the end, re-read the first chapter and see what I think. It’s always so hard to tell with your own writing. Other people’s work usually has mistakes that jump out at me (such as the repetition in the Harry Potter books mentioned last week), but it takes a lot more concentration to see my own.

Anyway, ‘hope you had a good weekend. See you Friday!
