There’s something to be said about editing, and that’s that most writers hate it. Anyone I’ve talked to discusses how annoying the editing process is, and I absolutely agree…usually. It’s hard to start, but once I get into it it doesn’t seem so bad. It feels as if it takes longer than writing the first draft (and rewriting the second and third). But when I come back to a book after putting it down for a while, it’s almost new. Sure, I remember the main events, but sometimes a character will say something that I’ve completely forgotten about and it’ll make me laugh, or want to cry (as is with Monarchy #3!).
Going through Monarchy #3 for what feels like the millionth time, I can see I’m getting close to the finish. At least with my own edits, I still have to give the book to others to get some feedback.
I’m quite excited about the path this story has taken; it’s one of those paths that you don’t see coming as a writer when you first begin. Things have happened that I never planned for, and it’s gone on a completely different tangent than I originally thought it would.
If you follow my Facebook or Twitter, then you already know I decided to get the covers for the first two redone, and after seeing them I’m even more excited to share! Not yet, but soon! They’re quite amazing 🙂 I also can’t wait to do a couple of giveaways for them through Goodreads.
