House Shopping v. Revising for an Editor (or Home is Where the Laptop Is)

Tip of the day: Check out this video of a book cover being designed -- really cool. I love the part under "revision."

Welcome, Readers, for an exciting episode of...
HOUSE SHOPPING V. REVISING FOR AN EDITOR: Scarily Similar! Don't see the similarities? Oh, read on!

Both require working closely with your agent.
Both require moving quickly when the market is ready for you so you don't miss out on a sale.
Both require internet research to see what is on the market already.
Both require patience.
Both require diligence.
Both require receiving feedback to see what might go wrong with the plan.

Guess what I've been working on lately? ;)

Anyone have any advice on either, I'm open to hearing it!

I've been working on getting my book finished, buying a house, and planning a wedding! In fact my blog is dedicated to doing those things. I'm with you on the similarities and the stress. Good luck!

I think you should make your future husband the "house search manager"!

Make fiance do the househunting and you work on the revising! Don't make the editor wait to long-- that's my advice.
