Eating elephants

My manuscript is an elephant. But how do you eat a whole one? One bite at a time. That’s how I’m trying to look at my editing. The Yeovil Prize deadline was on me and I got the first 14,000 words edited to a level I felt comfortable with. But now I’ve got this edifice of grey to tackle and my neck is hurting looking up at it. One bite at a time – but where’s the spoon?
