I just finished reading my manuscript all the way through. I had to stop edits to just read the last 50 pages because my timeline was all over the place and it was impossible to edit in a linear fashion until I grasped the whole thing.
Anyway. I am done reading, gonna get back to edits tomorrow and the scenes i have to rewrite. BUT. I have an ending now, in mind (i was a little lost), and overall I can say that I like what I wrote. When I was writing it it felt awful (it usually does with me), but I’m very proud of what I have. It probably will need a ton of work after it goes to my editor, but the core that’s there — I’m happy with. I cannot wait to share it.
