I’m working on editing one of my novels again tonight. I haven’t been at the editing nearly as long as I was at the writing, but it already feels longer.
I enjoy editing and rewriting, but it’s a long process. It’s great seeing a story go from being sloppy to being a neat, polished third draft ready for a copy editor, but there’s some long hours in between those two stages.
In other news, I’ve been coming up with more story ideas for the next thing I decide to write when this is finished. I don’t know how it is with most people, but most of the things that I write are based off of ideas that come to me at odd times, often while walking, and then I put them down on a notepad and then into a document on my computer for later, like I’m doing with my recent story. Sometimes the story just won’t wait, and I’ll get to work on it right away, as with a recent short I wrote but haven’t published yet.
Anyhow, I’d better get back to it, writing this blog post is just an excuse I’m using to give myself a break from the editing. Thanks to anyone who downloaded the novella during the promotion yesterday. I’d love it if you leave an honest opinion of it in a review on Amazon.
Take care, friend.
