BUT, as soon as Harry Potter is read, I will be the writing master! Nothing shall stand in my way!!
Half way there, just a bit more...
I'll still be done by September. I have to be! Avatar Season 3 starts then, and if I'm not done by then, it'll eat me whole!
Done by September
Edit 1 done by October
Let it sit a few weeks, another edit done by mid-November, then off to readers.
Readers have it until right before Christmas, then I spend Christmas slowdown adding in comments, fixing problems, etc. Also, this is when I'll draft my query letter, synopsis, and get my first 30 pages in crazy good condition.
JANUARY - start mailing queries, start on the next novel.
