It is difficult to believe, but it has been more than a year since I last posted an update on my blog. At that time, I was taking a break from blogging, as I had written about all the topics I wanted to cover, and I was going to begin the process of again rewriting my novel Angel of Mercy.
At the time, I believed I would be finished by the end of 2016, but at this rate it’ll take me 100 years to finish.
Let me explain:
Although I didn’t want to admit it in July 2016, my confidence in my writing had been severely shaken. A beta reader had offered to read Angel of Mercy. I sent her the manuscript expecting to hear the same level of critique I had gotten from an editor at a small publishing house. The editor’s critique was supportive and helpful, but I wanted a second opinion. Perhaps there were things a reader would notice that an editor wouldn’t and vise versa.
