So, what’s the best way to celebrate finishing your first full edit of your book? Having a glass of fizz and defrosting the freezer obviously!!! Its called doing one of the jobs you have been putting off while you have been writing and editing!
I am so happy to have finished my first full edit. Lots more work to do, but feeling pretty chuffed with myself! I have learned so much. One main thing is not to stress quite so much! Stick to your story, listen to feedback and try to apply it. I love my characters – you WILL too or else I will set Tom on you… Some of you know about Tom… Some of you will be meeting him very soon 😉
Thanks for all the kind words and encouragement from everyone, it really helps. My plans now… after I have finished defrosting the freezer – I am pretty sure most top authors do similar things when they finish their first edit lol. My plans; Full read of it to make sure I have the storylines in the right order – then another edit – another read through – then ready to let my ‘Editors’ (some friends) check it over. then I hope to send to some publishers mid July – eeekkkkkkkk. I am literally going to faint if anyone responds lol.
Anyway off to freeze my fingers off and sup my fizz. night my friends xx
