Welcome to my series, The Editing Diaries!
In a nutshell, I’m editing my story LASER and bringing you guys along for the ride. I want you to see how my process for editing novels works (and maybe I’ll figure out my process with you). So, buckle your seatbelts, we’re going on a trip!
DRAFT FOUR OF LASER IS DONE.
AND I AM QUITE PLEASED.
56,367 words! My baby grew so big! It was a 38k first draft.
So… now what, Katie? What’s the plan?
My plan is this:
- Go over Alpha-beta Reader Amanda’s notes and make small adjustments.
- PRINT IT ALL. Double-spaced.
- Write all over it, changing words and sentences.
- Implement the notes.
- Send draft to all my beta-readers hopefully at the beginning of June.
But right now, I’m going to bed. I’m tired.
Good night, reader-peeps! Go carpe the heck out of your noctems.
