Yesterday at 5pm I finished the epic “Reading of The Manuscript”–every single one of the 77, 311 words.
With pen in hand.
That would be seventy-seven thousand , three hundred eleven words in writer’s parlance.
It took a long time and I was hoarse for days. BUT! I found lots of funny little nuances and some ridiculous words that were axed.
Now my baby is off to the beta reader for a little loving scrutiny.
What was it that editor gal said…”Writing is re-writing”.
Time to work on another teaser…
