Editing my book
Last summer, I started writing a book. It's a murder mystery that I've had in my head for years, and never really got to really finishing it. Well, last year, I was determined to do it. I began working on it last summer, and finished my first draft last fall. Probably around the end of October, and the beginning of November. As I had written by hand, I began typing it onto my computer, while also editing, adding, and changing things. I'm not quite done my first edit, but I've been doing it on and off since then. I was quite happy to finish my first draft. I was proud to have finally pushed myself to write it down. I'm still happy that I did it, and that I'm still working on it.
As much as I am happy to work on my book, and as much as I am enjoying it, it can be hard work. It hasn't been easy balancing writing with my family, work, and all the other commitments that I have. The editing and revision isn't quite easy either. I know I have a lot of work to do on it, and it is quite daunting. But that's what has to be done.
At least, I finally manage to start the process again and to continue with it. I've procrastinated long enough.
Do any of you ever written a book? Or thought about it? Or know someone who has?
