Another day

Today has been a good day.
I worked a night shift for the first time in a while, so it gave me some time during the day to do some things. This included... dum da da dum... Me actually doing some of my editing!
I have re-written my prologue, this time in first person, but it is essentially the same.
I will be honest, it has improved, but I am still not 100% happy with it. It is the one part that bugs me the most because I want it to be perfect, I need it to be perfect!
I also got through chapter one as well. So I am pretty proud of that effort.

There was something that surprised me today when I skipped through and read some of chapter twenty-three, I knew there was something specific that I needed to change so I figured I would make a note before I closed it. I read through, and realised that it's not that shit.
Really, I was avoiding the later chapter because I feared the amount of editing it would involve. But it turns out, it really isn't as bad as I thought it was. It still needs work, but it doesn't seem as overwhelming now.

So that was my day, I edited, and I worked. Now time for sleep!

I'm finally following you back from FMBT. Good luck on your novel. I admire your desire to follow your dreams and write. I imagine it must not be too easy to find the time as a mom of two. Best wishes to you!
