As I said in as earlier post this week, work has been busy, busy, busy.
I sent a completed manuscript to a client this week which is always a really exciting step. Next they will review it and if there is something they want added or amended we’ll work on that in the coming weeks.
I’m editing another book right now which is taking a bit longer than I had planned, of course I always keep my clients up to date when this happens. Rushing this process is not how you end up with a great manuscript. When I encounter one that needs a bit more work than the author first thought, I will have that conversation with them because ultimately we both have the same goal for the book: we both want it to be the best version that it can be.
I dragged an old manuscript of my own out of the dusty old vault of my laptop this week, too. This was one I was working on about ten years ago and abandoned just before writing the ending for the first draft.
I love bringing out old projects and seeing if I have a new perspective that I can bring to it, and this is definitely one of those. One of the reasons I abandoned this one back then was because the main character lacked depth and I couldn’t see how to fix that. Now, I can see clearly where she lacked dimension and maybe I’ll try and bring this one back to life.
I also started working on a new project this week, the author has an absolutely amazing goal and I can’t wait to help her get her book out there.
I’d love to hear from you all about your writing this week? Any challenges or achievements? Comment below!
