Edits are a pain!
Well, tonight I buckle down and really get to it! All That It Seems, my first novel, needs one good last edit and then I will be done with it. Well, until my reader tells me otherwise. I have to get her these chapters to read and review and excited about someone outside of family reading it. I don't even tell the storyline to many.
I have been reading lots of good books! And I am finding that it helps me. Helps me to keep my voice, my sassiness. I like some "spice" in my story lines. I don't think I have one novel were there is not a spicy character or a spicy scene or just craziness happening everywhere you turn. And I am so far from any of that! I mean, I am a but of a drama queen, but really, I am a shy, quiet girl to most.
But I like the sass, so I write sass. Trust me, there is enough in All That It Seems. Between Amari's crazy, wild dramatics, and Shae's Miss Know-It-All attitude and MyKayla's quiet innocence, I cover pretty much everything. And I'm not even talking about the men and their crazy life!
Okay, back to editing! My dear people hope you get to read this soon.
