The hard yards – editing

It’s true what they say, write drunk edit sober. However I never expected that the editing process would be so sobering in itself. Despite that, I’ve enjoyed the process, having wonderful critique partners and an editor who knows you and your strength and weaknesses is a godsend. I’ve learnt so much in such a short time since going through all of this. I’m on to the fourth edit and when that’s done I’m sure there will be a fifth.

I’m planning on pitching my novel to prospective publishers at the Romance Writers of Australia conference this year – it will be the first time I’ve done a ‘pitch’, and no matter the outcome it will be awesome just to have got this far!
