Here's what they don't tell you about editing your book:
- You will read it. A lot. You will read it so many times that you know it word for word.
- You will second guess your writing style, voice, sentence structure, adjectives, and every scene you wrote.
- You will think of all new amazing plot lines, character flaws or other huge changes then realize that you do not have the time to weave them into your already written book. So stop trying.
- You will be terrified to send it off to your editor because even though you went through every.single.bullet point. You KNOW you screwed up something or forgot to review it one more time.
- You will also be terrified that THIS version may be THE VERSION and is it good enough??
I may have time for one more round if my editor thinks it needs it. And that's okay! To be honest, her input is what I needed for the past 4 years and I am so thankful for it. I know it has made me a better writer.
So yeah, while I was doing all of the editing and freaking out :) I was fortunate to spend last weekend in fantastic Atlanta surrounded by (and buying!) books for my day job. When I was strolling around, I came upon this great show of jewelry, clothes, and handmade bath items.
I LOVE handmade soaps, especially ones with honey and herbs so immediately I was drawn to one table. The Indigo Bath and Body company table was manned by two wonderful red heads that were awesome to talk to. One was an owner and the other was sales rep extraordinaire. Their products were awesome and of course I had to buy one. I purchased a bar of the Honey Bee-Have - YUM!
I love sharing great products and companies with everyone I know, so here is their website:
Their products are all natural and local and it is a company run by two women- SO go ahead, give some GA peaches some love!!
