I’m steeped in editing The Glass Wives and I must admit, I’m loving it. I haven’t read my manuscript thoroughly since before it sold in October. And now, I’m going through bit by bit with the guidance of the smashing Brenda Copeland at St. Martin’s. I’m making it the best book it can be. It’s daunting and exhilarating. And, it’s brought a few things to my attention.
There are editing essentials and they differ for each new and seasoned author. And because I’m planning a big blogiversary extravaganza giveaway to start next week, I thought I’d share my personal insights now, before we all get caught up in the party atmosphere that shall become Women’s Fiction Writers.
If you have any editing essentials – whether it’s soon-to-be-published or a WIP, tell us in the comments. Maybe I’m missing something awesome, let’s say, like a snack! And of course there are editing essentials not pictured here — like my debut author’s group, Book Pregnant, with whom I correspond about a gazillion times per day, and reading blogs and writerly banter on Twitter. All that helps keep me perfectly balanced, although I use the term lightly.
And, just a note, our Thursday guest will kick-off the WFW blogiversary celebration!
See you then!
