I’m now just over halfway through marking up my manuscript — for the first time, that is. And as you can see, there are some changes that need to be made.
And that’s OK. I’m finding weaknesses, seeing potential that I hadn’t realized was there before and getting a better feel for what works and what does not. And I also realize that this is just the first pass through, and there will be further rounds of edits, and this is just the start of a long process. And I’m OK with that. Honest!
Truth be told?
I’m already itching to start writing the next one. Yes. I said it. There will be a second book in this series — I said it, a series. I’m thinking five books to do it right. Plus maybe extra books on the side for some of the characters. Who knows, maybe ten when all is said and done. The more I research, the more potential I see.
And how I love the research!
There will be more on that in the coming months. Promise. But for now? Now, I need to buckle down and get these edits done. And then I’ll take you on a grand adventure.
