I Survived

I received my first round of edits and it wasn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be.  First I should tell you that I love edits.  You may ask why and I’ll tell you.  They make my story better.  Anything that makes my story is a good thing.  It also helps me grow as a writer. 

 

My husband tried to edit my story and I cried.  I think because I am too close to him and what he says.  If someone else edits me I take it in stride and work on sentence at a time.  When anyone edits my stuff I will get that first, Oh My God feeling where your stomach drops and you think, How am I going to fix this, but then I take a deep breath and dive in.

 

I already turned in my first set of edits and the turn around was great because I have the second round already.

 

The next question you may ask is, what edits are you working on?  I am working on edits for Forever Guy.   My story that will appear in the One Touch, One Glance Anthology along side 15 other authors.  I can’t wait until it is ready because I want to read all the other stories!

  1. Hi Jambrea!!

    I’m doing first round edits right now on ‘Wolf Signs’ and like you, I’m loving it!!

    Shocked at how many garbage words I had in the ms, but joyful to be removing them. Good luck with the continuing adventure…
