I finished the 7th draft of Jumpstart last night and at times it was like pulling my fingernails out. There were times when I was taking an hour to do a single A4 page 😦 The previous draft was a lot easier and I thought I was nearing the end of the process. But this one just shows that there was a lot of mistakes to fix.
It makes me think that maybe I haven’t improved as much as I thought when it comes to writing/editing. I mean it’s been five years since I first completed my Feet or Fins manuscript and three since I managed to put it out there. That book took fourteen edits before it was ready and in the time since, I’ve written so much. I should have leveled up by now.
But maybe I am leveling up and I can just see more errors? Hopefully, when I come back to the next edit, it’ll be better 🙂
