So... I realized something that will completely throw any semblance of seeking balance out the window.
I forgot to mention this earlier, but as of the end of July, I will be finishing my degree once and for all. And that means studying. LOTS of it.
It means that I will start spending a lot of time on summaries and concentrating on economics. From the very beginning. In other words: At the end of July.
Which means that I won't be able to revise all the way into August. On the contrary. I'm going to have revise 300 pages and do two editing rounds in three weeks. Because I am not letting anything compete for my attention while I'm studying. (At least it's on font 14 for now, so not quite as bad as it sounds.)
So... If I'm not on as regularly as before, or if I'm slow to respond, or rare on the blogs, please think of me, because I'll be up all the way to my neck in edits and revisions.
Why then, you might wonder, am I in such a hurry? Well... I won't be able to edit for three and a half months. Which means that I'll be able to give my crit partners more than enough time to crit my story. When I'm done with exams in November, I'll be throwing myself into rounds 3-6. Hopefully I'll be in 7-10 half way through December. And 10 to 15/16 at the end of January.
Then I'll decide what I'll do with the completed result. Will I query? Will I look for publishers? Will I e-publish? I'll see. By then, the market might be calm enough for me to see what is the best option.
In the mean time, I have a crap load of work to do.
Have any of you ever attempted to get through revisions as fast as I will be? How did it go? Am I completely insane to even think it's possible?
