The deadline for returning the manuscript is June 1. I thought I would be finished with it this past weekend but now it looks more like next weekend.
And even then, I will probably sit on it for a few days to mull over parts before clicking the send button.
It's a slow undertaking but I want to be satisfied (as much as an author can be because we're never totally satisfied) with the final version that will become a published novel.
