I’m taking a deep breath! I have just finished my first draft of Destructive Magic and now the task of editing begins. So the 1st half will be with the beta readers this afternoon, and then this week I’ll take a second brief run through the entire manuscript looking for the big things like typos and continuity and other glaringly obvious mistakes.
Then I owe it three more runs through before I even think about submitting it for publishing! Yikes!
I’ll take you through my editing process while I do this…I might make things harder than they need to be, but I think editing yourself is tough and I have a system that I use. It seems to work for me and if someone else finds a nugget that helps them, all the better!
