I am very excited to announce that my novel is finally in the midst of editing. I didn’t know what to say about this at first, but let me start with…
I HAVE A FULLY WRITTEN NOVEL.
There, that’s out of the way.
That being said, the hard work of getting the first draft complete was nothing compared to editing. Editing has been both educational for me and heart wrenching.
I say heart wrenching because it is very challenging to go back to something you’ve worked so long on and start chopping it up and dissecting it. After I got past that initial shock, I began to see the experience as rewarding.
I am learning a lot about putting together an actual book that I didn’t know before. I found an editor to work with, and I cannot stress enough how much that experience is teaching me.
In addition to being knee deep in revisions, I am also prepping for NANOWRIMO. Yep, I’m doing it again. My plan is to write part of the draft for book two of the book I just finished. I am really excited about how the outline is shaping up.
It’s been a busy writing month for me, and it’s nothing compared to what’s coming up!
Happy reading and writing everyone!
