Finally, today, just now, I completed the first draft of my first major work – “Tharblood, Kings and Seers”. I’m quite happy about it!!
And then came EDITING.
Wow! After the exhilaration of the first completion comes the agony of the first edit! Someone could have warned me, seriously. Re-reading, re-arranging, changing… then checking if the changes affect later or earlier details. It’s hard work people.
And then there’s the things which stand right out and make me wonder if English really is my first language, the kind of glaring mistakes which I last made when I was writing in crayon.
It’s a necessary process, I just have to keep telling myself that, and, for me, it’s also part of a long, hard, but enjoyable, journey. I’m getting, there, I’m sure of it. I just can’t say when!
