Editing update

I'm still waiting for the first batch to my first ever written novel.

My editor has said maybe this Friday. Is it normal for 27,000 words to take twenty days or more to edit?

I think it's due to her being busy trying to write her own novels at the same time. Which is understandable, but it's hard for me to have to wait, haha.

I feel too anxious to write at the moment.



  1. When I edit/beta read, it takes me 1-2 days to turn around 2000 words.

    When I'm doing full book swaps (60,000 words) it usually takes over a month and that's being very aggressive and doing multiple chapters a week.

    I don't think 20 days is slow at all, especially if that person has a full time job and they're just doing the edits in their spare time. If editing is their full time job, then that might be a little slow.

  2. Thanks Kimberlee

    I have only just noticed this post. Sorry hun.

    Yeah some of us still tend to get impatient lol...even after a few days wait.
