The first Wednesday of each month is Insecure Writer’s Support Group Day – Started by Alex J. Cavanaugh. It is a time when writers can release their fears into the world and give encouragement to others, allowing us writers the opportunity not to feel alone in our struggles and fears… You can find the link here….
I am editing again… One day I will finish this novel and be satisfied enough to send it off to an agent.
It only took me 4 months to write the first draft of this story, it was a whopping 45K words. But, it was the first novel I had ever finished. It had a beginning, middle, and end, that was definitely something to be proud of. Up until this point, I had had notebooks and computer files full of partial stories.
Only now, I am going on 9 months for editing, granted I took off November for NaNo and December to rest. Nevertheless, the other 7 months have really been going over and over this story. I am up to 67K words now. I am about ¼ of the way through my current pass (5th pass).
My fear is I will never know when to stop…. I don’t want to stop to early, but I don’t want to edit and revise this story for the rest of my life either….
The big question… WHEN TO STOP?
If I figure out the answer, I will let you know. If you KNOW the answer, then by all means, let me know!
