Editing, editing and more editing

Draft #2I’ve been busy reading my book and editing. After marking up my first draft to near illegible proportions, I have started on draft #2. With the exception of chapters 1 & 2 this copy is much less marked up which makes me hopeful that I might one day reach a point of contentment. I’m sitting around the 67,500 word range. I know that’s a little short, but I haven’t felt the need to add stuff anywhere to make it longer, so I’ll just keep working on it. I’ve got a little feedback and it’s been very positive! My brother even said he could imagine it being a movie which I found VERY flattering! It’s good reception has given me hope that maybe it’s actually good enough to get published! I just need to find someone to give me a chance and read my manuscript!! Finding that one person willing to read it is the hardest part! For now I’ll wait to see what people think, I’ve sent it to 17 people and have heard from 4 so I’ve got a way to go yet.

  1. I so can’t wait to get to where you are now! All the best 🙂

    • Thank you! Writing this book has truly been an eye opener, but all the hard work really doesn’t feel like work when it’s something you love! It’s the biggest feeling of accomplishment I’ve ever experienced!
