Last week people shared how long it takes you to write a draft. Today: How long does it take you to edit?
This is very much on my mind as I'm back in the editing weeds for Jacob Wonderbar and the Interstellar Time Warp, which I've now been editing for over three months. That is typical for me. After doing my own editing after finishing a draft I then usually go through two major rounds with my editor (the fabulous Kate Harrison), and then there's further tinkering and tweaks from there.
All that adds up to three or four months (with another week or two left to go on this one).
What about you?
