Finished rewriting novel!

I believe a celebration is due.  After a grueling weekend of rewriting and avoiding rewriting, especially the end, the most difficult piece, it’s done.  It wasn’t as difficult as I had imagined but, nonetheless, it still tugged on many of my emotions.  I believe it was almost just as fun rewriting the novel as it was writing the original copy.  Now, I am stuck on deciding what to do next.  With a novel and a self-help guide ready to go, I am torn between working on my children’s project or a young adult project that involves a very heavy committment.  Plus, there is still another novel already laid out.  I’m leaning toward something a bit more animated. 

I think it will be best to take a break from heavy writing and focus on something a little lighter, the children’s project.  This is something I have been waiting for more than a year to write and just needed to wait for the download to come into my brain.  The story line is in place but and, as you know with projects, I need to put the pieces together for it all to make sense.  It should be another exciting adventure that I can’t wait to sink my teeth into.  But, before I do that, I think I’ll send out a few queries on the novel.  After all, that is why I did the rewrite, right?  Ha!

  1. Congratulations on finishing your novel. Yes, your next move should be to send it out! Be prepared for the avalanche of rejections sure to follow but don’t let that put you off. This is the route all published authors take on the rocky road to literary glory. Good luck!

    • Hi adamdickson, thanks for your comment and encouragement! Thankfully, I have been through the grueling yet satisfying process of rejections and am excited about the future ones as well. With each rejection, the field of locating the perfect agent to represent my work narrows down! At least, that’s what I tell myself! Have a good one, Jaymes
