Wow, what a week! I’ve just returned from my three week long trip to Slovenia to find my editor had finished work on the latest version of my manuscript. For the seasoned authors out there, you know what I’m going to say next; for us newbies… wow again – and let me explain. There are a flurry of emotions that generally range somewhere between excitement and despair. The excitement stems from the fact that I am one step closer to finally publishing an actual novel – something that represents a year of writing late at night while working a full time job and taking classes for a masters degree. The despair – having to write late at night while working a full time job and taking classes for a masters degree!
Regardless, all of the edits will be worth it and I can’t thank my wonderful editor enough for all of her work.
What about you authors out there? Does your eye twitch when you see a red pen or do you live for the rewrites?
