I'm about two thirds of the way through my first edit of Odd Squad.
When I first started writing it, my main concern was to get the ideas down onto paper (ok, into Word), before they escaped from me. I knew that it was going to be far from perfect. That's what editing is for.
In between the writing, I was also doing a major re-write/edit on the previous MS (Ghost School). ((This will become relevant, I promise))
When I reached the halfway mark in my edit of Odd Squad, I started to notice that the text had been written in a more active style than the earlier bits. It seems that the work on Ghost School to make it more 'Show not tell' had influenced the new project. (See! I told you it would be relevant.) It still has many flaws, but it's rather nice to find evidence that I'm growing as a writer :o)
