Well, I guess I’ll just keep the series consistent. Yes, I’m still trying to get published. I’m not past the second draft yet. What a drag. I’m still working on it. I’m almost done with editing the first chapter! I’ll be glad to be done with that much for the second draft, anyway.
I’ll be honest, editing isn’t easy. I hate going through it. I’ve been changing entire scenes, even. It’s hard to know exactly how much you’ve edited when you’re changing entire scenes. It’s annoying, believe me.
I started a very obvious relationship in the book sooner than I wanted to, but I guess the characters decided they had to start dating in the first chapter instead of the third. That’s just the way it goes, I guess. It’s annoying, but that’s what I’m having to deal with. These characters have a mind of their own, so they don’t always go along with what you say. You never know what can they’re going to do.
Working on this has really given me an appreciation for what all authors have gone through. It can be frustrating, no doubt. I can only hope to be at least semi-successful. Of course, I wouldn’t mind reaching the best-seller’s list at least once in my life!
I will keep you all updated. It’s slow-going, but when I talk about this next week, I should be at least in the second chapter. I’ll let you guys know. Be sure to follow me on Twitter (@SCourtney94) if you want to be updated on it throughout the week. I’ll be talking about it there!
See you guys next week. Until then… 33/171 pages done.
