Slow and Steady

I'm a quarter of the way through editing my novel!  I just finished chapter 10 (of 41) and am on page 46 (of 181.)  So one quarter of the way exactly.

I'm sometimes disheartened by my pace on this, which averages about a chapter per week.  At this pace I'll be finished at the end of January.  But for the most part, I'm content with what I'm doing.  I am, at least, making steady progress and have found a good schedule of consistently writing during nap time, so I'm not exhausted and doing it at the end of the day.  So life is good.

Speaking of exhaustion, I took my kids swimming earlier today and am already tired. That's all for today.

Keep it up, Eileen! I know that dragging feeling that editing a novel can give, but it's worth it in the end. :)
