Future shock edit

The second draft of “Future Shock” is with my editor now, hopefully it’ll be ready for submission next week.
That sounds really grandiose, but my editor is my girlfriend. I say girlfriend but we’ve been together for 11 years and have no intention of marrying. Partner sounds too formal or euphemistic, whereas girlfriend sounds a bit temporary – that said I prefer girlfriend. Hrm.
So, should be ready to post next week. Phew.
