Editing

Picture
Thus far I have semi-completed four chapters. Now that doesn't go without saying that I deleted about ten chapters throughout that process. My editor is whipping me into shape! She has some seriously great ideas on how to make my book better. It's just hard to keep deleting and cutting out entire sections of my book. Overall I know it's the best thing, but it still doesn't make it any easier. Sometimes I feel like I am never going to get this book finished. It's like the song that goes on and on, the book version. There are times that I just want to give up but it's people like you reading this blog now that keep me motivated. Thank you for helping me see the light at the end of the tunnel. Without your constant support I don't think I would have the courage to finish my book. Knowing that there are people out there who are waiting for my book to be released keeps me trucking along.

As crazy as this sounds, I already have ideas spinning in my head for my second book. I am hoping that all the knowledge gained from writing and editing this book will make my next one go by way faster. After working on 'Falling' for so long I tend to get a little burnt out. I feel like I've been going around in a hamster wheel with Rosalee and Harlan. Their story has been in my head for a year and then I've been rewriting it over and over again. Soon, I promise, it will be completed and ready for the world to enjoy. I can't wait to share with everyone else all the things I have been building upon in the book. I only hope that you all love it as much as I do. Well, let's be honest, there will be tons of people who hate it just as much as I do on some days. But that's okay. It won't be for everyone just like it's sometimes a torn in my side.

Now seriously, I am going to change out some laundry and knock out another chapter tonight. I have been slacking with my blog and I know it... sorry! Lately I haven't had the time to write, read, and review along with everything else going on in my life. Someone please tell my husband to let me stay at home so that I can devote more time to my hobbies :D Have a great night and thanks for checking in on the blog!

You should save your cuts and deletes. Maybe the will be the makings of a next book.
