Thank you encouraging first readers!
Early positive feedback indicates that my first novel might be worth finding a professional editor and agent!
Once you’ve read and worked with a manuscript for so long, you no longer have any perspective, so I truly appreciate the reader responses I’ve received. I am especially grateful for one reader’s careful notes, which enabled me to make some important edits right away! (If you’ve seen some errors in this draft, they may already have been taken care of). ;)
Meanwhile, NaNoWriMo looms just around the corner. I’ve spent a lot of time on my first novel, and I won’t really be able to focus on either of the others until I have more time again – like I do in the summer – so what do you think, shall I dive into the creative writing process again this November? I’m already thinking about my next story . . . :-)
