I’ve started the sixth revision cycle. The reading is going very quickly; I’m trying to read 3 or 4 chapters a day, if there’s time. I’m able to race through the chapters because I have fewer changes and corrections to make. Sometimes I’ll read 2 or 3 pages without even touching my keyboard. That’s a good sign.

Most of the changes that I’ve had to make so far have just been little things: replacing a word with a better word, fixing a punctuation error, maybe rewriting a sentence — nothing major.

I estimate that I’ll have at least one more cycle to go before I’ll be able to say that I’m satisfied with the novel. Even then it won’t really be “finished” — no piece of writing is ever really “finished” — but it will be close.

I’m also still sending query emails to agents. No bites yet. I’ll keep trying until the end of October, and if no one is interested, I’ll publish the novel myself.
