Besides that, I face a dilemma of, as I said, priorities. I should edit Dragons Over London to begin podcasting it. I should edit Rabbit and Cougar to submit to a second round of agents and, possibly, to send the whole thing to a publisher that reads manuscripts from its slush pile - Daw Books does, and I believe Tor does, also. I should edit Lord of the Dark Downs for a first round of agent submissions. I will do all of these things - but which to do first? Besides that, I have the website itself to work on, a short story that I plan to soon rewrite, and of course my continuing work on The Dogwatchers. The website is important and time-sensitive in a broad way, insomuch as I want it ready in time to add the address to my author-description when Reynard's Menagerie asks for it. The other things are important insomuch as I will not get a novel published if I'm not submitting my novels to people. For what it's worth, the work I've actually started editing this summer is Dragons Over London.
Of course, the upside to all this is that, no matter which of these things I do, I'm getting something done that needs doing. And I enjoy editing. Yes, it can be frustrating at times. I don't often edit the piece I'm currently writing, but I recently took out a piece of The Dogwatchers, the piece for which I needed the dead rat mentioned in earlier posts. :P But it's so much fun to see my work improve!
One last note, tangentially writing-related: my favorite author, Diana Wynne Jones, had a book come out June 10. It's called House of Many Ways, and I just finished reading it. It always inspires me (in the you-can-do-it way, not the I-steal-your-ideas way) to read awesome books, especially in my own genre. Hurrah!
