I've Finished Editing! and ROW80 Round Four

Woo hoo! Round Four of A Round of Words in 80 Days is here!

And my goal is very very simple: query the novel!

Yes! I finished the penultimate round of edits of Out of the Water last night!

On to betas today, and time to begin polishing up the query letter drafts. Thank you Nathan Bransford for all that query writing advice.

October also means a new literary resolution. I picked up the original list from Theresa Milstein. October is another reading month: "Read a best-selling mystery. What can you learn from a well-paced page turner?"

Finally, an excuse to read a couple more Cat Who... books. Lots to learn from those, about pacing, subtle romance and she-makes-it-look-effortless characterisation.

Don't forget - there's going to be a 24 hour Rock the Row party on Wednesday for:

All the participants who just finished Round 3 of ROW80;
Anyone who plans to post their goals and dive into Round 4; and
Everyone who supported the ROW80 writers throughout the year.

I'm not on Twitter, so will be participating on Google+, Facebook and through blogs. For the rest of you, just use the #ROW80 hashtag. There'll be competitions and prizes!

And now, back to my I've-finished-editing celebration (in between all the other stuff I have to do that I've been putting off, including writing a haiku (more on that to come) and panicking at having to write a query)!
