Over on his blog Joe Abercrombie has posted about the ongoing editing process for his current work in progress (A) Red Country.

I like these informative insights into a writers methods, as one myself – albeit juts starting out – I find it incredibly interesting seeing how others manage their word counts. Looking at his cutting of chapter two its a marvel that he can get rid of 2,400 words – that’s a decent short story – and still have a chapter that works.

Looking forward to more posts like this, and more news on the progress of the book.
