Editing has begun! Again..
Today, when my daughter went down for her afternoon nap, I finally decided to open my WiP again and resumed editing. I started from the beginning again, which I have done a couple of times now, but it has been so long since I have worked on it that I thought it would be a good idea to refresh my memory a little.
In my limited time, I made it to the end of chapter 4, which is two chapters further than I was able to go on previous editing sessions! I’m feeling fairly pleased about that.
However, I am also feeling mildly overwhelmed and lost when it comes to my notes. I wrote notes on things to add and change as I wrote the first draft, and I realise I should probably be looking at these first before doing a reread of the book.. I think I will look into them more deeply next time.
Anyway, it feels good to get back into things! Despite being overwhelmed, I am enjoying the editing process more this time than I was last time. I guess I really did need that break after all.
