So, about that novel... My editor was flattering, even as she tore my novel to shreds! While it took some time to absorb, she was right about everything. The plot is fine but there are so many things I need to cut, to clarify and strengthen. While she edited the first half, I'm not even working on that right now. At this point, I am working on the ending - not a small deal - writing it based on the changes I will make later on the first half. Confusing? Yeah, but it actually is working quite well and the ending will be so much better than i hoped for. Thanks Shannon! The due date is November 30. Will I make it?
