Just got to the halfway point with the edits for The Church. Louise is doing a great job with it but I must admit it's also been a little embarrassing seeing all the mistakes I've made! I knew that I probably put in too many extra words but I didn't realize how many! I'd guess I'll lose about 3-4,000 words off the final count. Ouch!
The story is now a lot tighter, sharper and moves at a far quicker pace.
This also shows me how much I need an independent editor. And more practice!!
I'll update again when the edits are done and Louise gives me her opinions on the story as a whole.
