Isn't that what "they" say? It's not over til the Fat Lady Sings? Well, I'm tellin ya, it's over! I finished my latest WIP this afternoon. I have been working on that sucker since April. There were days when I had to super glue myself to the seat! Editing and re-writing are not what I enjoy doing. Now I'm going to go over the entire manuscript again, polish it, make sure I spelled the heroine's name correctly consistently, and pray that the publisher is STILL interested in my work. When people pick up a book to read it, they have no idea how much time you have actually put into that little work of art. Someone said to me one day, "I think I could write a book, it looks easy." Well, she was right. It is easy to write! What's not easy, at least for me is re-writing. There were days when I came into the office, I felt like someone was sticking bamboo shoots under my finger nails. Yes, it was torture. Now, that I am able to sit back and read through what I have re-written, I'm happy that I've spent the past six months working on it. Now, the waiting begins. However, no vacation for me, I've already started the next book. This is the fun part though, writing. Which is your favorite part? I read a blog the other day where the writer shared her favorite thing to do is editing. Maybe I should call her, she can do the editing for me, and I'll do the writing for her. I'm not sure that would work.
