Hi, Cheryl, Kathy, Dory and everyone!
I’m making headway with my editing. Finally finished my short stories and now I’ve picked up with editing my contemporary romance which I have not looked at since January! It needs a lot of work – and here I thought it was pretty near perfect. Silly me.
The story line is good – it’s interesting. But there are many places where the phrasing needs to be re-worked, redundancies need to be taken out and there are places that need to be fleshed out. Also, I need to write a last scene that will tie everything up after the story comes to an end.
There’s nothing like letting a story sit and not looking at it for almost a year to help you recognize it’s short comings.
