Writing a novel is mainly a solitary project that you work on for months. And, when you type ”The End” it is a huge achievement, but what do you do next?
Over the years, I've found ways to make editing easier. Today, I will share my methods to help you and other writers.
I am releasing the chapters so quickly now as I am just excited to get them out there. The readers on Wattpad are posting the more encouraging comments. One even compared one of my chapters to Percy Jackson!
Another chapter is up and today's thoughts are on the theory of writing about what you know.
As I get closer to releasing the ending on Wattpad, I get more nervous. I have put a lot of time and effort into my novel (I'm talking years) and I really want people to enjoy it.
I'm letting the fear of the next steps hold me back and I need to get out of my own way.
This is the chapter where the snippet comes from: Still crouching under the table like a naughty little fairy, I had enough happy thoughts to fly me to Neverland.
I am now getting the final chapters saved in draft to be published on Wattpad for you to read.
Last week, I was distracted and didn't get as much editing done. I was suffering with mild anxiety but now I've dealt with that I feel focused on getting my novel finished.
I tried to edit this chapter yesterday but something strange was up with Google Drive and it left me feeling a little paranoid about whether it would save my progress.
