Thank you for your daily messages asking about the children's book I'm working on. I'm glad so many people are curious about progress. And I am every bit as excited about eventually having a finished copy in my hands as you are! Books do take time though, because so much goes into creating them.
"So what's going on with your book?"
Editing is no laughing matter
So, I'm going to grab a coffee and start reading each chapter from finish to start - hopefully that will keep the words fixed on the page a little better!
But seriously, editing is no laughing matter. My story for middle graders has already been through more rounds of editing than I can remember.
The editing process is an act of love.
We want to present our readers not with the rough rock that the story was at the beginning, but with the well cut polished ruby it becomes during the editing process.
And now I better get back to work, I hope you all have a wonderful weekend filled with moments as precious as hidden gems.
