Editing has begun! Again..

TheWritingProcess3

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.

  1. Congrats on getting back into the editing process! Also, have some chocolate. You’re going to need it. *throws chocolate bars at you* I’ve finally hit the editing stage on both books I’m working on, which is … well, it sucks. There is nowhere to escape the nightmares of editing hell now. But ah well. It’s always nice when you get to the other side and see how much progress you’ve made, so hang in there. 😉

      I won’t say no to chocolate! Thanks! 😛
      Good luck with your editing! I am happy with my progress so far. I’m definitely doing better this time around than I was doing before my break.
