Alright, the book is perfect and ready to show to the world… or is it? I don’t know! Twilla, quick I need for you to read it one last time before we launch. *fast foward* Now its ready!!!
As a first time author, I had no idea it would take this much time to get this book just right. Dont get me wrong, I’ve written several scripts and knew the elements of a good story but never knew the effort behind it. BUT I LOVE IT! Everyday there’s a new discovery. I feed off of researching information about the ins and outs of publishing. Digging deep for Do’s or Don’ts, cohesiveness even proper formatting.
Recently, I realized the more I write the better I will become… which scares me. It never fails that once I re-read the pages of the manuscript I get disgusted (Eww what was I thinking)… such a vicious cycle. The gift and the curse huh? I want to my voice to resonate, to perfect my continuity and my writing style to be an art form. That’s why I write and re-write and re-write. That’s why Twilla reads, corrects and re-reads. At the end of the day we just want you to read something that’ll force a standing slow clap… and maybe tears. lol
