Editing.

Today I start the editing process. I completely restructured my novel yesterday. I had originally planned at starting the story in the middle with one group of survivors then go back and tell another groups story. So the times were all mixed up. I felt like it would propel the story and attract readers… Well it became too complicated and I felt it hindered the story. So I had to restructure it and I think its much better. Now chapter 1 is really chapter 20 lol.

I also found a huge mistake in time frame where my story was off by 5 years. So now it takes place in 2004 instead of 1999

I will post a few sample chapters when they are ready ๐Ÿ™‚

This whole thing just breaks my heart. If there was at the time no evidence to prove who was right then why didn’t they arrest the adult with the firearm? I mean really the boy had a bag of candy and a drink…

Why is it my printer costs $30 brand new and the ink for it costs $35? Well then answer is simple the ink in the new printer is a “Sample”, its not filled up… I wish I could afford a fancy printer like the one I have at work. I can’t imagine what that one costs. Probally somewhere in the $200 range… One day, one day I tell you!

Going back to my day. I got home and printed up my new novel (well except for the last 10-20 thousand words that I haven’t wrote yet lol) I am trying something new with my novels. When I finish them and do my own proofreading and editing I’m doing it on paper. It seems to work better for me than if I doย it on the computer hmmm. When I’m done with my novel it might be a short story with all the red ink I’m using. I’ll take a picture of my first page and post it here so you can laugh with me!

Then its time to break out my red pen for editing and proofreading… I hate this process but its always worth it. Without editing you will find some scary, scary stuff…
