Practise makes perfect???

Well, I am officially in editing mode for the first half of Karma Kameleon, the sequel to A Bitch Named Karma. I'm excited to be doing this. I am one of those writers who can just write and write and not edit while in writing mode. I know many writers who have trouble with self editing....and scrutinize every word the second they type it. My process has always been to get the story out and fix it later.

But I wonder if the more I do it, will the "fixing" part get easier? I can tell with every project that my writing gets stronger and tighter. I make far less grammar mistakes as I am constantly re-learning all those rules I learned in elementary school. I've already been through the editing process with a professional editor and I know I have learned so much from her. My hope is that now, it will all be a bit easier..less work will have to be done afterward!

  1. I know I haven't been here in a while, but I thought I'd let you know that your cover is still so eye catching to me. Love it. Good luck with the sequel!

  2. Thanks Bethany!!! So sweet of you!!!! :)

  3. I've discovered that with each story, the editing comes easier because I'm slowly writing cleaner. I also had to relearn grammar rules and now that they're ingrained, it cuts a lot of the line editing, so I only have to worry about content editing.

  4. Niceole, that's how if feels for me too!! I am going through this WIP and it seems like it is so much cleaner than my previous work. I hope it actually is and not just me thinking it's better! Cause there have been times where I thought something was great only to find later on (from writers group members) that soemthing isn't as great as I thought!! :) LOL!
