Hey guys and girls!
I know it’s been a while since you last heard from me, but here I am! As you can tell by the title of this post I have started my revisions on LQoT. So far it has been painful. Not going to lie I have been excited, yet still dreaded, this process. As soon as I started reading over The Last Queen of Terrivea I realized something. Unlike most writers, I do not have an inner critic.
Shocking, yes I know. So now that I’m in revisions it makes it that much harder to spot flaws in my work. It’s nearly impossible actually. So now I have to find a way to make this process work. I’m thinking about getting a writing peer to read through my manuscript (who will be honest and straight forward) and help me find the flaws. Since I don’t seem to have an inner critic I will need to find a physical critic to help me. I’m hoping this will help me develop my own inner critic.
It doesn’t help that this is my first time going through the revision and editing process, so I feel a bit clueless. Not just a bit, I feel very clueless. I’m not sure how to find my own process since I don’t know how to start, especially with a non-existent inner critic to my disposal.
I never thought there would be a time where I wished I had an inner critic, but apparently now is that time. If anyone has any advice, or wishes to be a Critique Partner, please, please, please, leave a comment below!
I always try to be honest and open about the writing process as I go through it, and so here’s the truth. Writing the book is the easy part. The revising, editing, and querying are the hard parts.
Thanks for reading,
