Editing Update my urban lit African American romance - Leyton and Angelica
I'm pleased with my progress but though I have a schedule with writing, I work in a storm, a zone, I just get lost. This is because its my escapism and pretty my the only thing I have control over - sometimes. So more often than not I do a little more. However I do have a timer to tell me when its timeout.
I'm probably not following the Holly Lisle How to Edit Your Novel lesson one as strictly as I should, like I'm not heading for perfections but note I've been on a lot of courses so I do what I can. I'm doing with broad strokes but her tasks instilled me with confidence.
So far, I've rediscovered a lot of good things and treasures about my story which I hope the reader will enjoy - if I get to keep them. Not there are also a lot of bits that suck! Remember this is only lesson one. There are also parts that suck. There is a fair bit of emotion. And using Holly Lisle's method - at least in lesson one, I don't feel I suck as a writer. I feel the time I invested in writing this was worthwhile.
I can probably get away with doing this in lesson one because from the course outline https://hollyswritingclasses.com/shop/how-to-revise-your-novel I'll do deeper in lesson three. This lesson has made me optimistic and excited about editing. Plus I don't get tired workshopping. As I said workshopping is a great learning model for improving work but it doesn't work for everyone all the time.
