It has been a long time since I've had anything to report on the Tefr Blog, mostly because my writing time is almost exclusively taken up now with my Novel and MA submission. But as a way to wind down my mind and get my eye in, I've been spending a few minutes each day going through the Prelude to Rhapsody manuscript and filling it with little red marks.

Given that this book was my first serious attempt at writing anything, I'm surprised at how little I need to change. Yes, admittedly I could have read a book on punctuation before starting, but I've done that now, so I'm picking my way through steadily with my red pen. I don't need to change much as far as the system is concerned, but I have to admit that some of the writing is pretty dry in places, and I feel that the addition of a few narrative examples, here and there, will liven up the text, and provide a better feel for the system ethos. The editing will take me up to Christmas, but it may take a few more months to come up with the examples. It would be great to get a fully finished edition, with a proper ISBN number, published in time for the Frankfurt book fair next year.

And then it will be time for me to tackle splitting the Knowledge is Power book into to different volumes, amongst my many other projects. Keep an eye on my other blog for developments there, next year is going to be exciting.
