So I have gone through three more chapters of editing today. While this is good progress, there were definitely moments in the story I thought, ‘how did I ever write this junk?’
I find I have to keep reminding myself that as I write more, read more, and yes even blog more, my skill improves. A paragraph, page or a whole section of chapter that I thought was good six months ago now seems like drivel to me. I try to constantly improve the way I structure sentences. I want my stories to be as clear as possible to the reader because I know that when I read, anything that makes me stumble can quickly turn me off from the work.
