The Second Half

So I finally finished my handwritten edits on my summer hot mess manuscript. And I'm happy to report the story isn't that much of a hot mess. There's a reason I couldn't let go of it and wanted to go back and edit it again. The main characters. They are relatable and real and I really care about their story of marital un-bliss. So go me! I hope others will too.




That said there is still plenty of work ahead.



Now it's time for the second half of the game where I get up close and personal with my Dell laptop. As if we aren't close enough. So back to the Bat Cave. See you as I come up for air.


Best,

Kwana

Make sure you stop for a moment to smell the flowers; important for the soul. Or at least have a cup of tea, which is like a spa for the soul. :)

Good luck, Kwana! My handwritten edits always go a lot better than the soft copy edits.

I can totally relate. I like my characters in my first MS. My crit group liked them. Unfortunately some agents didn't seem to. I got a real nice helpful "R" from a NY editor with great feedback. So after I let MS#1 marinate, I'll be revisiting it for some "tweaking". Hard at work at MS#2 (same H&H but different secondary characters). Even with "R's"I still love to write, and to be challenged to improve daily.

Color me impressed. I wish I had the fortitude to embark on a project like that. I bet the finished project is going to be wonderful. Always a good sign when you heart your characters.
