Revision Hell #2

So I’ve gone back to the drawing board with “book one” of my current manuscript. I have made giant changes thanks to an outline to help me see what could’ve been wrong with the story.

The revision feels stronger, the pace flows perfectly and I’m learning to catch small I habit I tend to sprinkle through my writing. I should have left it for NaNoWriMo but I’m too impatient to wait for that, haha.

Hopefully I finish my new revision in November and get back to querying. Maybe pitch it again in a contest! But only when I’m finished the full thing! Wish me luck!!

POSITIVE LIGHT

So the pitchwars contest came to an end and I’m a little disheartened for not getting any requests at all. However, I feel like I still won because I made a lot of new friends put of it and met some really amazing writers like myself!

Instead of seeing it in a negative way, I’m focusing my energy on seeing the good that came out if it. As they said it’s not the be all of end all when it comes to our stories. And it’s true. But I would have loved to work with a mentor and learn how it would feel to work with a potential agent.

But this isn’t the end for me or my work. I’m querying again for a bit and there is the AuthorMentorMatch happening on Monday! So I’m excited for that! At least Pitchwars helped me realize there is nothing to be nervous about when submitting my story anywhere.

Wish me luck for this next one!
