Editing Update...and Stuff.

Has it really been FIVE days since my last post?  I swear, it feels like I am blacking out and transforming into Super Editor while my regular self is unconscious.  I have no idea where the time goes.  When I finally realized I'd finished my content edits the other night, it was like waking up out of a trance.  I kept asking myself, "How did I do that?  What did I even write?"  Now that all the heavy lifting is done, I am reading through and making sure it all makes sense.  So far it does, and I am really happy with it.  Thanks Super Editor!

Also, and this is completely unrelated, I just found out last night that the book I AM NUMBER FOUR, was actually partially written by James Frey!  Crazy right? 

I Am Number Four is a young adult science fiction novel by Pittacus Lore (a pseudonym for James Frey and Jobie Hughes). The book was published by HarperCollins on August 3, 2010,[1] and spent 7 straight weeks at #1 on the children's chapter of The New York Times Best Seller list.[2]
Touchstone Pictures and DreamWorks Pictures bought the rights to the film in June 2009; it was released on February 18, 2011. The novel is the first of a proposed six-book series.[3]

I know there was this whole deal about A MILLION LITTLE PIECES being mostly made up, but I didn't care one tiny little bit.  My entire book is made up.  Anyway, I was a huge fan of A MILLION LITTLE PIECES (not a young adult book by the way).  I absolutely loved it, and I'm glad to be reading more of James Frey.
