I haven’t been on here much today. I’ve been posting so much the last two weeks, I had to give myself a little bit of a break so i could get back to Eversoul. I also woke up at 4 am this morning to go to work and at 3:30 pm I was out like a light bulb. Terrible and overused metaphor, but I think I’ll be able to look passed it for this post.
I had someone bring this to my attention today because my editor recently took a job with a company, and she is bombarded with work. Anyways, I’ve been searching for an editor for Eversoul, and a fellow author asked me, “If you do your own editing services for people, then why don’t you just edit it yourself?” Well, duh! I edit my work about four-five times before I even send it out to a second pair of eyes to look at, let alone an editor. I found that the best practice is to have a second, third, and even a fourth pair of eyes look at your work before you even think about publishing a novel. This is so that you don’t happen to accidentally miss something. I know I’m not perfect, so I definitely want that peace of mind knowing that someone is caring for my work and giving me their attention to detail as I would with any other author. So yes, you maybe an amazing editor, but you will still make a few mistakes here and there. Even is your missing that simple “s” on random pages.
Anyways, time to go get some groceries. I’m starving and Nadine is waiting for me to leave the computer. So here’s my post for the day. if I can fit another one in, I will, but I enjoyed all of your responses on the last few posts I’ve done. Thanks for taking the time to read and appreciate your thoughts!
