It's a nice problem, but still, a problem.
I have two finished manuscripts. (I know, right? What a problem to have! I hope I have this problem often!! --not really--)
One MS, The Forester's Son, is heavy. Complicated to edit. Gonna take a long time, because the words in this one matter so much...the setting is so important to get perfectly right...the interplay of the characters...and the twist at the end...so complicated! But coming along.
The other, PoloGRRL, is light. Easy. A good subject, close to my heart...I truly don't think this one will be difficult to edit at all.
And thus, the rub. Right now I'm in the editing throes of FS, and NOT PG. And here's my question for you all today::
have you ever edited two MS at one time? Can it be done?
On the one hand, I think it would be good practice for me...you know, when I make this whole writing thing a reality full time...to be able to bend my mind to two such different, utterly diverse MS. On the other hand I think, are you nuts? Pick one and stick with that!
But that was only my rule for writing them, my lovely blogger peeps. I never established that rule for editing them!
And thus the rub.
I shall think about this this evening, and would really like your opinions. It would be nice.
