I’m two days ahead of schedule!
I just finished the rewrites of my last chapter and the epilogue to Twenty-Five. I wasn’t supposed to be finished with those until Monday! So I guess my lack of social life pays off every once and a while.
Now that I’ve finished the bulk of the rewriting, I’m going to start early on the minor edits of grammar and typos and suggestions from reviewers.
The big problem, though, with my rewrite is that now my book is WAY TOO LONG! I meant to shorten it on the rewrite but ended up increasing the length by about 4000 words! So now I’m probably going to need to do some major chopping, which sucks, because I already cut out a lot of stuff that I loved.
The editing process is never done!
One thought on “Woohoo!”
Congrats on finishing. I can relate to the thrill. In the editing, you’re going to have to be ruthless. It’ll take several passes to get the ms to where you want it, but you’ll get there.
