Revisions!Some writers hate them, some writers love them, but we all have to do them.
Revision is rewriting. Editing in big chunks. Like, "I wrote this scene for chapter two, but I think it should actually go in chapter 37." It's all about decisions, and let me tell you, it's hard.
So, only two people have gotten to read my book: my mother, and my critique partner. No one else will until I have revised it so much it's almost unrecognizable as the same book. And trust me, it's a good thing.
There's another reason I'm not sharing my book. If I got copies of it made and distributed them, it would be considered "self-publishing." I don't have space to talk about exactly what that is here, but at some point I will.
If you want some inspiring and useful advice on revising, I'll direct you to two places:
Anyway, happy revising!
