I’ve finished the final draft of my novel. How do I know it’s the final draft? Because I don’t want to go through that again! Not until my next novel.
Two friends have graciously consented to read my work and provide comments. While they read, I will edit with ProWritingAid and see how often it makes me cry and gnash my teeth.
I’ve defeated the passive writing beast, but repeated words and sticky sentences are the bane of my life now.
I may seek beta-readers, but I’m not sure the tension of waiting for feedback wouldn’t kill me. Hmmm, thinking it over…. 🙂
