To edit a novel is to prune, pluck, and change the rough stone you have created. It involves addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, and every once in awhile some grammar. If you edit, you are examining your heart and soul, then putting your findings in your work that the world will see. If you think you can do it half-way, you are wrong because you either edit, or have done nothing at all. Maybe you are afraid of the truth you have to write, maybe you are afraid of ridicule, but editing is a process of bravery that will drain every last ounce of your reservations. When you are done with editing, there is nothing left but pure brilliant gold that will shine even if eyes never gaze upon it.

She must learn that doing what is right isn't always easy, especially when you fall in love with a very dangerous angel! View all posts by Everyrosehasathorn
