How's Your Editing Coming Along?

I have been working on one of my manuscripts, editing, adding chapters and scenes and WORDS. Glorious words. I love words, don't you?

My recent work, which I just finished, Soul Driver, has went through some major editing. I decided to write an inspirational fiction and Soul Driver was the perfect manuscript. I added ten chapters!

I just wanted to share my good news.

I'm still looking for a CP.

Who else is in the editing process? How's it coming?

  1. Coming to the end of my first draft at the moment!
    Added ten chapters? That's a lot.

    1. It's always exciting when you get close to the end of a book, isn't it?

  2. Congratulations on accomplishing so much. I am close to the end of my first draft of my second book and I am still revising and editing my first. Every time I feel like it is finished and ready for me to begin querying, I read it again and find something else that needs to be fixed. I finally decided, this past week, that I am giving myself a final deadline to complete all revisions and then I have to accept that I have done all I can do. I will never know if I have what it takes if I don't start submitting my work. I suppose fear of rejection plays a major role in my reluctancy to write the final "The end".

    Best of luck. I apologize for not visiting during the Buccaneer blogfest, but I sort of reached a burn out point. I am back and recharged so I will be back often to visit your blog.

    1. I'm so glad Melissa! Thanks for stopping by!

      Sometimes we all need a break. With school starting up in a couple of weeks, I may be reaching a breaking point, too.

  3. Wow, ten chapters! Truly amazing. I'm in that weird creating/editing/revising phase plus trying to manage the 800+ emails that aren't spam and aren't going away. Haha! Happy writing!

    1. That's just too many emails to answer for anyone! Looks like you need an assistant!

  4. I've been letting my MS sit and simmer-- creating a bit of distance. Or perhaps I've just been procrastinating. It must be done. Congratulations on your progress-- hoping your enthusiasm will rub off on me. Thanks for sharing.

    1. You are certainly welcome, Julie! Come on! You can do it! The longer you wait though, the more ideas that may surface. That, my friend, can be a good thing:)

  5. A big fat manuscript is not something I've attempted yet, just shorts and rhymes. Its a huge achievement to complete a book and you added ten chapters as well! What's your book about?:))

    1. I have loved writing this story, It's about a girl who is thrust into a journey of self discovery, lies and betrayal, redemption and forgiveness.
      Thanks for stopping by. I'm still looking for the Bees and Mist book...

  6. I'm in first draft mode, which I love. Except my book is growing a lot more than I know it should. It will be my first rewrite in ages that I have to CUT a ton... oh well... for the moment I just keep pulling toward the end...
