I have finished about the fifth edit of my novel, and I am finally getting to a point where I am only changing words. I am finally getting to a point where I can read it through without deleting entire paragraphs. I was not afraid to do so, and I was very open to changes, which is so unlike me.
I'm currently at my weekend job listening to Pearl Jam, eating oatmeal, and researching for the little details. So, with my new research there will be other things I have to change.
Writing is editing.
I have spent so much time into making sure this novel is the very best part of me. I have 2 more read through before I send it off to a professional editor. I finally get paid next Friday and I am so excited to finally get my cover designed. I have an idea in mind, and I hope they can convey it perfectly.
I have loved the process, and I'm only half way finish, with much more to come!
