Edit. Edit. Edit. Time to rewrite. Yes. That looks good. Okay, almost done. And... done! Okay. All the rewrites are done, I can go back to just editing and then I'll be all done with this. Wait. You know, it would make more sense if... dammit!
This has been a glimpse into the madness of editing The Paladin. I foolishly thought today that I was done with rewriting. That I had finished up all the sections that needed to be spruced up and now I could focus on just editing and cutting words. I could just zoom through the rest of the manuscript now without a care in the world. I was wrong. Thanks to you rewrites, I'm having to take a closer look at every section to make sure it falls into place properly. The changes haven't been big, change a word here, delete a paragraph there, and voila! Everything maintains continuity. But no...
I had to go and realize that I had a chance to make things better. For things to flow better and make more sense. By changing another chunk of the story. So... rewrites. Not over yet.
Keep your eyes open for my debut novel, The Paladin.
