One Step at a Time
It’s getting difficult to name these weekly update posts. Perhaps I should just start calling them all “Weekly Update” with a date! Anyway … another week has gone by.
Book one: progress has been made towards publishing. I now have a cover, and I’m in the final process of sorting payment and getting the files. This means I have pretty much everything I need to upload to Createspace and order my proof copies. That will be next week’s task. I’m very excited about my cover–it looks great. But I think I’ll save sharing it until nearer the publication date.
Book two: my aim this week was to crack on with the editing. I can’t actually remember where I’d got to last week, but I think I’ve probably done five or six chapters this week, and I’m now 25% of the way through. So that’s reasonable progress considering that life seems to get more manic every day as we get closer to Christmas.
I spent some time over this weekend in Exeter–a cathedral city in Devon, in the south of England. I was visiting relatives and doing church stuff, so unfortunately I didn’t have time to take any pictures. However, I did drive past the Christmas lights and they were very pretty!
Here’s a picture (not mine) of Exeter cathedral. I don’t think I’ve ever visited the cathedral, although I have been around the town centre in the past.

If you’re anything like me, life in the run up to Christmas turns into doing all one’s normal stuff: work, chores, admin, writing etc. plus all the Christmas stuff: social, presents, cards, decorations, until you feel like a headless chicken. Hopefully, I will get some more editing done as well. I hope you all have a good week.
