I finished the first draft of Ride to the Altar just before 2017 slipped away. Now, on to the next phase!

Writing in Obedience
My hubby always says, “The only good writing is rewriting!” Even though most advice says not to, I edit and revise as I go.
I think it’s because my first writing was fanfiction that got posted in serial style, chapter by chapter, on an online archive site. I rarely worked ahead, so I would write a chapter, edit, rewrite, edit (repeat) until I was happy with it and then post it. Even after three 200+ page novels I still write a chapter at a time, in chronological order, and edit as I go.
I usually do too, Pearl. This last one was a mess though. It needs some serious work.
You really know how to dig in the knife. LOL! I am hot in the middle of edits and rewrites. I am amazed at what I see that needs fixing I did not see the first and second and third time through. BID may yet be honed to the greatness it needs to be. Thanks for the mimes. I always enjoy them.
Authors are notoriously blind to their own works. I’m no exception.
Love these, particularly the first, about figuring out the story and then finding the most dramatic way of telling it. 🙂 And, congratulations on finishing the first draft of Ride to the Altar!
That first one in particular hits home. I’ve got my work cut out for me!
Woohoo! Congratulations! Can’t wait to read it. 🙂
Scrambling to get it readable by next month, then I’ll send it to you—with fingers crossed and abated breath!
I’m sure it will be even better than the others because of all your hard work.
Thanks for the vote of confidence!
