Editing with Katie Cross

Photo-on-2011-02-22-at-15.31We have Katie Cross here answering some editing questions. Hope you enjoy a session of editing with Katie Cross. 

  1. What is your editing style like?

    I don’t really have a style. I take feedback from beta readers, outline/figure out a new plan, and edit through the story with that current outline/plan in mind. Then I take a break before the next edits.

  2. While on a deadline, how do you stay on top of your edits?

    I stay on top of edits with a deadline . . . pretty much never. I’m constantly pushing back deadlines.

  3. About how many chapters do you aim to finish a day?

    I don’t aim for chapters. I just start and move forward as I’m able. I’m not all that organized about it.

  4. How long do you edit for?

    I can typically work for about 3-4 hours before my brain blitzes. I’ll take a break several hours long and return for another hour or two. Sometimes more or less.

  1. So I totally check it out, and shared it, and drooled over your blog again, and forgot to comment, ha!

    I’m a woman of few words in interviews, apparently. 😉
