Starting ‘Visitors’ Edit

I started work on the first edit of a new short story this morning. This is a pretty typical setup for me; I try to keep the work in an analogue medium for as long as possible. After I have read through and marked it up I will type it out on a computer (iPad, into Pages) and then print it off to go through and mark up again. Sometimes I think I’d like to try using a typewriter for that stage, but I would still have to type it into a computer at some stage anyway.

I’m working at the dining room table at the moment while we are waiting to start work on the spare bedroom, which will double as my office and laundry room. Hoping we will at least start that by the end of the year. I would love a space of my own already, but I haven’t had that for almost five years, so I’m used to working wherever I can find the space. I guess it will just be nice when I actually have a desk and a door to close.
