Feel like I am stuck in hell. Actually, stuck in something much worse than hell. Stuck in EDITLAND!!!
I always start with great enthusiasm, ready to find all the little nits that managed to hide the last time I proof read a certain chapter, but somehow editing never fails to dimish my moral.
I recently let my BF read my book, which to her is finished, to me slightly resembles the Colosseum. You get the jist of what it is meant to look like - but boy does it need a lot of work!
If it is ever ready for agent/publisher/a non-relation to read, it will be a miracle! I discovered Fanstory about a million years ago, and is only in the last few months that I have had the courage to post on it. The rewards of this website are awesome, you get to meet some really cool characters.
Along my way, I have developed a fanbase. Small, but there none the least. Without them. I doubt I would have gotten anywhere with my book. It isn't only because of the feedback that I have received that makes me grateful for this site, but also because of the opportunity to see other writers and their work. I have discovered a few jems, and truly hope this career takes off for them.
Sigh...have prcrastinated long enough I suppose. Someone save me a seat to hell...
