Last week, I completed the first round of professional edits for my upcoming novel. Surprisingly, I am invigorated to dive back into this manuscript. I have been working on novel number two for some time now, and the distance from Double Out and Back has granted me objectivity necessary to improve the prose. The changes are not huge, but the meticulous detail and agonizing over the best way to craft each paragraph, sentence, phrase, and word become a labor of love.
All of this means I am one step closer to publication. Hooray! I can’t wait for you all to read it when it comes out.
