I was so proud and excited to get to the end of the light edit of my novel, reading through, making notes, slashing stuff etc. Yesterday, I got to the end, but instead of elation…I felt absolute horror…knowing I now had to do the actual second draft!
It seems more daunting than writing the first draft! All the corrections I have to make, and the notes! Oh my, the notes, on things I need to add, rework etc. Wow.
I am getting a break from it this weekend because I have to go up to Fort St John, BC, for the Northern Classic Bodybuilding, Fitness and Figure Championships. I volunteer as the president of the association, so I will be there to run the athlete’s meeting as well as judge at the show. I won’t have a computer or internet access, so it’ll be a bit of rest. When I get back..I hope I can face up to my manuscript and get to work on my second draft!!
