So, as many of you know I am knee-deep into edits for Lacrimosa. The rough draft was finished a month ago, and I edited through my crit group as I wrote…so the rough draft is a little stronger than a typical rough draft. A little…
But now that it is in the hands of betas – and they are appropriately shredding and helping find the holes – I am getting the “fresh eyes” I need to see the story from a new perspective. So, with the help of my best writerly buds, I’ve set some lofty goals and deadlines to get this baby polished up and in the best shape I can!!!
Thanks Betas and crit buds…without you, this would b a whole lot harder…but more on that in a later post.
For now I have a question for you guys – How do you get the perspective you need to do a good job with edits after burying yourself into your WiP? Betas? Time? Lay it on me!
