Can't believe we are about to crest the middle of the month already! Once November is gone, we'll be staring down the barrels of 2020.

I'm still editing, editing, editing...

Fairly sure I will finish my (4th) edit by the end of the year. Word count is likely to still be north of 300k though (considering it was 423k when I first started editing, I suppose it's a small victory). Prose feels a little tighter and I've cut down on some sub-plots and characterisation.

The downside to finishing the edit is that I will have to finally pass it over for beta and potentially think about querying - frankly, I'd sooner fight Stipe Miocic!
