    Editing with An Editor: An Entirely Foreign Process

    Editing with An Editor: An Entirely Foreign Process

    Today I talk about Editing. Going from 1st draft to 2nd is one thing. And from 2nd to 3rd... well, I'm just beginning but it's a whole other thing. And hiring an editor to help with this project is a necessary step, and a giant leap of faith.

Insightful and fun

It’s been lovely hearing Briauna’s journey, lessons on writing as a budding novelist, and the intriguing clues about her first science fiction novel. I’m excited to join her through the experience and learn some thing along the way!

I like it

It’s relaxing to hear someone out there that is dedicated to writing in her own personal journey. Keep it up.
