I am writing a novel. It is two-thirds complete. The trouble is it has been two-thirds complete since March 2020. Lockdown interrupted the routine that had helped it evolve to that stage. I began to take up proof-reading and copyediting in a big way, and discovering how much I enjoy the process of editing other writers’ copy.
