Writing is only as good as the editing.
After two weeks of feverishly paring my 149k-word novel down to 109k words so that I could send it off to my editor, I realize that the editing has only started. My novel’s bleeding deep and I was too, but I’ve rolled up my sleeves and am ready to tackle this novel.
Of course, it feels as though there is too much to do before the writing conference the end of August, but perseverance has pushed me for many years, and perseverance will continue to pull me through.
Have a wonderful weekend! I’m off to the drawing board — gonna sketch my overall plot again, chop the excess, and establish better POV. #feelslikenewbiestatus #really?
That’s what editing is all about.
